Project Detail

Wood End Elementary School

New K-5 Facility | Reading, Massachusetts

Envisioned as a "school-in-the-woods," the award-winning Wood End School in Reading, MA uses an exposed timber frame, skylights, and generous windows to strengthen its connection to the adjacent town forest. The media center, located between the more contemplative academic wing and the more active cafeteria/gymnasium wing, is the heart of the school. An intimately scaled entrance courtyard and lobby welcome visitors and students to the school. Wood materials bring warmth and softness to both the exterior facades and interior environment.
