Riverdale High School

Since assisting Riverdale School District with their bond measure in 1995, Soderstrom Architects aided the District with multiple projects, including a new high school. In the summer of 2000, the District selected a 1928 brick school building previously owned by Portland Public Schools to renovate. The multi-phased project included demolition of over 75% of the original building. The front of the building was retained to preserve its historical facade. The original exterior windows were salvaged and re-used as interior windows. Clerestory windows high above the new library/commons area introduce natural light into the center of the building. The addition also included a new gymnasium.
