Incorporating usable outdoor classrooms into six existing sites at El Paso, Texas elementary schools provided Sites Southwest with a fun design opportunity to create whimsical outdoor spaces for special needs students.
Paso del Norte Academy was in need of additional parking, lighting, site furnishings, landscaping and irrigation improvements around one of their El Paso, Texas campuses. The school contracted Sites Southwest to give site analysis and design options.
Project VIDA’s clinic, wellness center and administration building provide much needed services in an economically depressed area where outdoor spaces are at a premium. Sites Southwest’s challenge was to create some additional outdoor space for the community that also met the clinic needs.
One of the goals for Tierra Antigua Elementary School was to integrate nature, learning, fitness and play into the landscape. Sites’ designers carefully considered the developmental differences and skill levels for all age groups.
