Epiphany School, a private K-5 elementary in the Denny Blaine neighborhood, once shared space with the neighboring church. The site renovation, expansion and new classroom building create a separate identity and accommodate the school's unique needs. The master plan unifies new and old facilities around a new central open space that has become the primary gathering and play space for the school. The site design includes a parking garage, expanded play areas, outdoor learning areas and a school garden. The project "gives back" to the neighborhood by providing a generous streetscape with artwork, a pocket park, and access to the new pre-K playground. Teacher parking is handled compactly in an underground garage. The project achieved LEED Gold, including an innovation point for J+S's sustainable soils and landscape maintenance plan.
