Little Diomede K-12 School

Project: Little Diomede K-12 School Client: Bering Strait School District Location: Little Diomede, Alaska Type: Educational

This project was a major renovation to an existing elementary and high school facility. The completed design offers flexible spaces to fit various learning environments within available space and it serves as an educational and community gathering place. The renovation included a new foundation, roofing, siding and windows. A new entrance and community outdoor space were designed to offer a strong renewed spirit of the place. The heart of the facility is a gymnasium which also serves as a community center. Some challenges include limited water supply and a self-contained sewage treatment plant.
