College Preparatory School Master Plan

Location: Oakland, CA

Project Type:

College Prep School is one of Oakland’s exceptional private schools. Located in a deep ravine in the Oakland hills and within a quiet residential neighborhood, our challenge was to accommodate new program elements within a narrow, linear site enclosed by steep grades. These changes will enable the school to operate comfortably for the next 50 years. The master plan divides the site into four sub-areas: an entry/arrival and parking orchard, an arts court and amphitheater, a speaker’s court for “all-school” events and a ball field and bleachers in a newly configured level area. The landscape and architecture are designed to be sustainable and to demonstrate sustainable concepts and technologies.
