Gonzalez Goodale awarded new K-8 school project

Gonzalez Goodale Architects is proud to announce an award to design and build a K-8 school campus for Somis Union School District in Ventura County.  The new campus will replace the current nearby school which has served as a central community meeting place for over 100 years.   Along with Ventura based Main Street Architects + Planners, Gonzalez Goodale expects to engage the predominantly agricultural community to integrate a ?Farm to School? curriculum into the new facilities. In addition to a 21st Century learning environment, the proposed design will give students access to outdoor learning areas, gardens, and instructional kitchens which will serve the food grown on campus. To continue the tradition of community involvement, a multi-purpose 'grange hall' has been proposed to serve as a new hub and resource for the District as it continues into its second century.
