Maury Elementary School
Join us for a panel discussion, building tour and networking + happy hour!
Maury Elementary School is a cornerstone modernization project for east Capitol Hill. Physically, the design creatively maintains the existing, historic 1880s 4-square classroom building and integrates an addition as compactly as possible on the tight, urban site. A glass-edged atrium seamlessly connects the historic with the new to celebrate the original historic façade while amplifying transparency and indoor-outdoor connections. The school’s mission encompasses offering a nurturing environment to its community of involved learners, fostering creativity, cultivating curiosity, and forming lasting connections to develop self-empowered citizens. The re-imagined school promotes and elevates this mission. Design principles that contributed to the newly-opened school include embodying core values of both the school and neighborhood community; maximizing open space for play and community use; and creating a unique sense of place that inspires, attracts, and sparks children’s love of learning.
Jointly sponsored with the Washington DC Committee on Architecture for Education (AIA|DC CAE).
