Bowman Learning Village

Bowman School, a Montessori school in Palo Alto, expanded into a neighboring site. Their new Learning Village includes a Children’s House (classrooms and administration), gymnasium, Idea Lab (STEM center, arts, and media), an outdoor learning amphitheater, parking, and bio swales. It also add preschool classes to the previously K-8 school.

Adding 1.26 acres and 15,000 SF of building space, the project nearly doubled the school’s size and required complicated permitting as well as demo and grading. It features a below-grade amphitheater, green building, and site-work. The ground-up buildings include wood frame, structural steel, and shotcrete.

Unique Sitework Features

Designed in a residential style to blend in with the surrounding neighborhood, the Learning Village showcases many custom-designed, artistic details. These include unique sitework features such as colored concrete placed in designs to make patterns in the sidewalks and student-inspired stainless-steel art inlayed in the concrete in the parking areas and walkways.
