Knapp Elementary School

We partnered with the Racine Unified School District on architectural and interior design services for the new Knapp Elementary School.

The two-story, PreK-5 elementary school replaced the existing school and was constructed on a contiguous city block. The existing school remained open during construction; however, once the new structure was complete, the old building was razed to accommodate play fields.

Knapp Elementary School features dedicated gymnasium space with room for spectator seating, as well as a separate cafeteria. Community programs in partnership with The United Way take place in a shared Community Room and on an exterior pathway called the “Born Learning” trail.

Although not seeking certification, the design of this school is equivalent to LEED® Silver.
