With small, moveable blocks, staff and students have begun to reimagine what parts of Olympic High School will look like.
Thanks to community support of a bond measure, design work will soon begin on an addition and remodel at the school.
Architects have started preliminary meetings with staff and students. In a recent meeting, staff and students were given blocks representing classroom spaces to place on mock designs. The work will help develop a vision for the project.
SKL Architects is known for creative building transformations. They turned a church into an airy, modern private school. They reimagined a 1910 hotel into Seattle’s Wing Luke Asian Museum and community center.
Students and families are also being asked to take an online survey.
When complete, Olympic will have a new entrance, an expanded commons and a new center core with new classrooms and renovated Career and Technical Education spaces.
