SEATTLE WALDORF SCHOOL
As architect/prime and landscape architect, J+S explored a variety of growth options for the Seattle Waldorf School and its 7-acre north Seattle site, ranging from bringing their high school to the site to expanding the pre-school program. Consideration of Waldorf’s unique philosophy and pedagogy were critical to both landscape and building design. We provided a vision plan for use of adjacent properties for a school-farm and play area use, important elements in Waldorf education. Sustainability features include green roof, sustainable finish materials, low flow plumbing fixtures, high efficiency lighting systems, rain water planters, cisterns for garden use.
