Claremont Middle School

Location: Oakland

Project Type:

Size: 2 acres

Partners: S.Meek Architecture & OUSD


PGAdesign was contracted by Oakland Unified when Claremont Middle School wanted to tear down an old building and put in a new artificial turf field along with a new multi-purpose building and courtyard. 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, as well as planting plans for areas around the field and in and around the new courtyard and surrounding areas disturbed by construction. The new planting and site furniture created clear paths and relationships between new and old buildings, and the courtyard becomes a new hub of activity outside of the newly constructed kitchen, cafeteria and gym.
