This $2-million renovation of a 1930’s-era elementary school represents the culmination of a five-year collaboration between the owner and architect. The project included a significant public outreach component, during which more than twenty Newberg-based community groups were interviewed in order to determine how the public wanted to use the facility. This project is a direct reflection of that input and includes a professional sound recording studio, computer lab, ceramics studio, fused glass studio, various art studios, community board rooms, administrative offices and a new art gallery.

LEED silver was achieved with high- efficiency HVAC equipment, increased indoor air quality, enhanced systems commissioning, recycled and regional materials and supporting alternative forms of transportation.
