Claremont Middle School

Location: Oakland

Project Type:

Size: 2 acres

Partners: S.Meek Architecture & OUSD


Oakland Unified School District reached out to PGAdesign when Claremont Middle School wanted to remove an old building and install a new artificial turf field, courtyard, and multi-purpose building. In collaboration with the school’s architect and leading a team of landscape architects and engineers, PGAdesign provided design schematics to construction documentation and administration for the placement, grading, and storm drainage of the field. PGAdesign also prepared planting plans for areas around the field, courtyard, and surrounding areas disturbed by construction. The new planting and site furniture created clear paths and relationships between new and old buildings, transforming the courtyard into a hub of activity outside of the newly constructed kitchen, cafeteria, and gym.
