Murch School Feasibility Study Completed

Process—————4 November 2014

Studio Twenty Seven Architecture recently completed a feasibility study for the Murch Elementary School in Washington, DC. The work involved exploring options for doubling the size of one of the City’s public schools.

In addition to a significant increase in school size in response to increasing enrollment, the project challenges include managing a reduction in building area on the current site as well as preserving open space and the historical significance of the original school building.

These diagrams document the process of a community-engaged feasibility study. They illustrate how design ideas were modified in response to feedback from the community and representatives of local government agencies. The diagrams illustrate the stamina of creativity required to design and manage a large public project.
