Tierra Antigua Elementary

Green design elements, such as an efficient building envelope, solar water collector, high performance mechanicals, a reflective roof, increased insulation, high performance glazing, sunshades, and light shelves, reduce the energy consumption of this neighborhood school by an estimated 47 percent. The school is organized around a light-filled central lobby with a media center, an outdoor amphitheater, a cafeteria with a raised platform for performances, and a multifunctional gymnasium.
