Addition to an Historic 1873 Schoolhouse · Petaluma, CA

The new wing is carefully positioned and proportioned to respect the existing historical 1873 schoolhouse thereby extending its useful life. The new classroom and office addition creates a decked and landscaped courtyard. The interior features exposed wood scissors trusses and skylights providing full daylighting and natural ventilation. Slab on grade floor and windows concentrated on the south provide passive solar heating. An operable awning provides shade over the south windows on hot days.
