Griffith Woods School - McKenzie-Highlands-School-intro

Story

Maple Reinders was awarded the contract to build the Griffith Woods School, for grades K-9. Nearby Griffith Woods Park, after which the school was named, inspired the design including elements like the playing fields and the trail.

A two-storey eastern section contains classrooms and administrative areas and the two and a half-storey western section contains the gym and more classrooms. A highlight of the open concept design is the feature staircase which uses cross-laminated timber, glulam beams, curved linear wood ceilings, linear wood walls, glass guardrail, stainless steel handrail and a graphic mural.

Other innovative features include flexible classrooms with operable walls to enable reconfiguration of the spaces as children’s learning needs evolve, as well as collaboration spaces for teachers and students alike.
