Orcas Christian School Gym and Multipurpose Building​

Orcas Island, Washington

Orcas Christian School was in desperate need of a high school building, gymnasium and multi-purpose building to accommodate their rapidly growing student body. The school wanted the new construction to compliment the Ivy League form and style that already existed on the campus. Upon completion of the new buildings, they are ready to continue their growth and achieve their academic and community goals. (Work on this project took place through Lewis Architects)

Project Highlights

  • Barn-style roof helps mitigate the large mass required to provide the space needed for a gym without dominating the site.
  • Exposed wood trusses in the gym continues the expression of a barn, allowing it to work with the other smaller, farm-style buildings on campus.
  • A top-of-the-line NBA grade wood floor provides for a full-court basketball and volleyball court and space for additional activities.
  • Custom-cast concrete emblem at the entry for brand identity and school spirit.
