This multi-phased project grew out of an earlier master plan completed by Johnson+Southerland. Three new classroom buildings, two major remodels and a number of smaller additions and remodels were completed over a four year period. These projects improved a total of over 37,000 gross square feet of classroom and support space as well as site improvements to Overlake’s rural campus. The design of these projects required sensitivity to the complexities of Overlake’s program as well as the complexities of the existing physical campus on a sloping site with multiple wetlands. Site sustainability features include open space preservation, a vegetated green roof, storm water catchment systems, raingardens, and native plantings to complement the significant native forest on site. The projects were phased to keep school in session throughout the construction period.
