The New T. M. Peirce Elementary School

2300 W Cambria St,  19132

Grades: Pre- K-6

The new elementary school will be a 77,000-square-foot, three-story building with brick, metal panel, and curtain wall systems on the exterior with a steel structural frame. The height of the building and the proportions of the facades and window patterns will reflect the residential scale of the neighborhood, with the classroom wing located on the smaller residential Croskey Street.

The curtain wall will define the front entrance, provide visual security for the administrative offices, and showcase the music and art rooms on the floors above the entrance. The ground floor cafeteria and media center above will also contain a curtain wall and generously sized windows to look at the play yard. The building will also be designed for LEED Gold certification. Both the gymnatorium and the cafeteria are located on the first floor as these spaces are anticipated to be shared by the surrounding community during the school’s off-hours.

The intent is to provide a beautiful and safe elementary school that will encompass 21st Century learning environments while becoming a place of pride for the students and a beacon to the surrounding community.
