Truro South Elementary School

Truro, NS

This 6 600-square-meter, two-story school is a LEED certified facility. It replaced four existing schools in the central and western areas of Truro.  Its curved shape was designed to flow with the contours of the land and minimize site and vegetative disturbance.  A large curtain wall maximizes the use of natural light, while the  administration lobby  and lunch room flow together to make a single, open space in the centre of the school.
