A unique elementary school prototype and the first of its kind for Davis School District, South Weber Elementary School adds four Kindergarten classrooms, five First Grade classrooms, and five Second Grade classrooms to a small campus anchored by an 12-classroom school and community recreation center. The building also houses a new multi-purpose space, a media center, a support kitchen, two digital media labs, and administrative/counseling offices.

EDA’s design of the K-2 Center expresses the principle of building as teacher. Through its architecture, the building educates students about the surrounding natural environment, incorporating elements that illustrate sustainable strategies unique to the school’s location at the mouth of Weber Canyon. Here, the same strong down-canyon winds that inspired the school’s mascot, a windjammer sailing ship, animate a design theme of “wind, water, and sky.”

The building incorporates renewable energy, natural daylighting strategies, passive heating and ventilation, water conservation and reuse, and material resource efficiency, among others.  Unique elements include periscopes (i.e. light wells), wind turbines, photovoltaics, and a solar hot water array.
