TerraLogos collaborated with Penza Bailey Architects to respond to an RFP extended by the Baltimore City Public Schools system for the renovation and major addition to the existing 1970’s elementary school, located in the heart of the Waverly neighborhood. Our presentation included a quick concept study for incorporating as many LEED for School and green building strategies as possible, while evaluating the program, circulation, site development and phasing requirements included in the design brief.

Environmental Design Features:

• Efficent high volume HVAC system
