  • Hollis + Miller Architects used color, mobile furniture, and dynamic spaces for learning to flourish at Hopewell Elementary in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Positioned atop a hill and nestled within trees, Park Hill School District’s new Hopewell Elementary is a sanctuary for discovery. Six hundred students, grades K-5, have the opportunity to use every square foot inside and out of the building for learning. Traditional hallways have been molded with flexible collaboration spaces to maximize flexibility and efficiency. Every core classroom has its own glass garage door, allowing teachers the opportunity to open into collaboration and project spaces. The art room looks out to a patio facing the tree line, inspiring creativity in students and spilling natural light into the learning environment. The durable materials used on the exterior of the building will withstand the elements and provide a timeless look for generations of students in the future.
