We had an unexpected phone call from the Roseland School District this morning informing us that they have received state funding for the construction of Roseland Creek School. This 750 student energy-effiecient elementary school will be built on Burbank Avenue in west Santa Rosa. It has been awaiting funding for almost 3 years. The primary challenge in designing this school was accommodating a large student population on a small, 8 acre site. Our compact ‘urban’ 2-story design solution is unique for an elementary school in our area, and frees up substantial outdoor play area for students.
