Montessori School of Winston-Salem

Positioned on a wooded lot between an existing barn and farmhouse, the Montessori School of Winston-Salem’s Upper School serves as a bridge between both built and natural environments. A project that responds to the Montessori concept of respect – for self, others and the environment – gives students the freedom to explore and develop to their fullest potential. The layout was driven by several majestic old growth oak trees that were saved and are now integral to the campus. Context is celebrated through modern takes on familiar forms and materials, while deep overhangs provide transitional spaces to experience nature.
