Memorial Elementary School | DIGroupArchitecture - architecture and design

Memorial Elementary School | DIGroupArchitecture



History: After a devastating fire destroyed most of Memorial Elementary School?s original building, DIGroupArchitecture was commissioned to design a brand new facility for 650 students in grades Pre-K through 5. Collaboration with the district and consideration for the school?s history were paramount, resulting in a state-of-the-art learning facility and a welcoming public event space for the community. The success of this project is a result of two major factors: a 20-year relationship with the client and the maturing of DIGroupArchitecture?s in-house graphics and interiors departments. It is a reflection of the firm?s attention to detail at all scales, from site design to signage and wayfinding.

The walkway includes five seating areas, each highlighted by a concrete star in the pavement and a bronze plaque. The plaques were envisioned by DIGroupArchitecture early in the design process and suggested as a portion of the school?s budget. 42 months later during the final stages of construction, the in-house graphics team executed the final design.
