Meridian Public Charter School

Washington, DC

Renovations and additions to the former Harrison Elementary School provide over 63,000 sf of space for Pre-K through 8th grade students of the Meridian Public Charter School.
  • Improvements to the existing building include modernized classrooms, office spaces, stairs, and circulation space for students while a 3-story 14,000-sf addition adds large assembly spaces.
  • The addition is placed in the void between the existing classroom wings. The use of glass, metal and wood complement the existing masonry structure.
  • Building entries on 13th and V Streets have been restored to their original character.
  • New energy-efficient windows, designed to restore the original look of the building, along with new HVAC systems, contribute to the project’s achieving LEED certification.
