Clara Hughes Public School +
CLIENT: Durham District School Board
This two-storey 65,000ft2 elementary school is located near the site's corner to emphasize its importance to the local community. It has four kindergartens and a large two-room private child care, with the respective pick-up and drop-off areas incorporated into a separate driveway. Through negotiation with the City the on site bus traffic was minimized by locating the bus pick-up and drop-off on the municipal street. This move maximized the site's size for school use.
