Hugo Reid Elementary School

Arcadia, California

The Hugo Reid Primary School Modernization and Expansion is an example of a high-impact campus transformation on a modest budget. Originally built in the early 1950s, this small neighborhood school was growing outdated and needed enhancements for 21st century learners. Inspired by the original mid-century modern architecture of the campus, the modernization includes upgrades to classrooms, fresh interior finishes and the implementation of the district’s progressive technology standards.

Unifying the campus, the new Student Services building includes a library/ media center, collaboration rooms and support spaces for students and staff. Inspired by the tree-laden site and supported by “steel trees”, the roof crescendos at the library with an overhang. The roof brings natural daylight into the building while extending the library outdoors to include a reading terrace. The campus is transformed into a community beacon, a positive reminder of the power of community support and collaboration.
