Steenland and Kment Elementary Schools

Roseville Community Schools

As part of a district-wide improvement plan, Roseville Community Schools decided to replace four aging elementary buildings with two new, 21st century facilities. John R. Kment Elementary School represents the smaller of the replacement buildings with a capacity of 490 students in grades K-6. District goals of functionality, safety and adaptability were satisfied by organizing academic clusters and early age/core spaces into tow zones to allow for flexible and secure building use.

In response to Core Planning Group priorities, the Media Center became a transparent core to the building, placing different learning settings on display. The arching, day lit "main street" connects primary entrance points and promotes glimpses into active environments revealed along the way. Ceramic tile artwork, created by students, is permanently featured within walls to add personality.
