First Education Project Opens

New school projects such as Bristol Primary School in suburban St. Louis not only solve the post-war need for classrooms, but provide innovative ways to create shared and collaborative teaching spaces – a continuous theme in HOK buildings.

HOK is commissioned by the Webster Groves School District to design the project for 180 students. The school is designed as two building units: one a central all-purpose room surrounded by four classrooms, offices, kitchen and teachers rooms; the second unit is a two-room kindergarten.

An early award winner for HOK, Bristol Primary received one of five top national awards from School Executive and an Award of Merit from the American Association of School Administrators.
