Straub Middle School

Straub Middle School is located on a north facing slope and was designed with the natural curve of the hill and elongated in the east-west direction to maximize the benefits of daylighting and passive solar radiation. The building was designed to be LEED Silver equivalent with a primary focus on energy efficiency. The progressive, clean design of the building was developed during our community outreach process using a neighborhood preference survey. The building is designed for a 100 year plus lifespan by using long term durable materials such as brick, concrete and glass. These hard surface materials are balanced with the warm, rich phenolic resin panels made with wood veneer. The building has been designed to be as visually open as possible, allowing a high degree of passive security.
