Located on adjacent sites, Mead School District expressed a desire to create a campus architecture with the new Elementary School and Highland Middle School. The two buildings have their own identities through the expression of different programs and response to their location on the site, but relate to each other through architectural elements, concepts, and similarity in materials.
