Set in the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, the redevelopment of the campus at West Sedona School, was master-planned to take advantage of the views to nature while creating a strong link to its artesian community roots with the art boulevard. The goal was to come up with an updated contextual design that worked with the existing context of the older buildings that were to remain, while providing for a new front door and strong master-plan to better organize the campus, all while having a net zero impact on the utilities. Walls of glass and natural materials were used to connect the users to the surrounding nature. The building rooflines and the overall form inspired by the adjacent mountains were used to create a campus architecture that is nestled within the picturesque red rock landscape. Project completed while at Orcutt | Winslow.
