The Kings Valley Charter School in Philomath, OR needs a new and larger gymnasium building. This is our proposed design which incoporates elements of the existing structures into the new building and program.
We designed the new gymnasium to reference the existing main school building which features a exposed roof truss at the entrance. I scaled up this idea so that students and visitors can inhabit the truss. Providing not only seating areas, but also a enhanced entry experience that transparently provides a learning opportunity about building design and construction
