WEST UNIVERSITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
70,000 FT² RENOVATION OF EXISTING SCHOOL
36,000 FT² NEW CONSTRUCTION
When HISD focused its Re-Build HISD program on West University Elementary School, English + Associates was asked to update a portion of the existing, historic school as well as design a new building. By adding to the existing campus, we felt that we were participating in a process that began in 1925 with the original campus planning – an idea that should be honored as we developed the design. We saw the overall campus as part of a continuum of planning and design, gaining a new structure approximately every 10 years to keep up with the school’s needs.
