Manzanola K-12

Wold worked with the Manzanola School District to secure a BEST grant to renovate and add on to their historic school, consolidating all of the District’s students into one space. The 1925 building is one of Temple Buell's first built works, and the design has been developed to feature and reinforce the historic building’s original roots.

In bringing all of the District's PK-12 students together in one school, the design advisory group (DAG) expressed a desire to support a single school community. The design of the addition is organized around a two-story media center adjacent to the west facade of the historic building and serves as the heart of the school. Learning spaces are organized around this heart in two wings, mirroring the original Temple Buell design. The updated layout creates an additional learning courtyard and an extension of the media center.

The Manzanola PK-12 Addition & Renovation project included:

- 21st century flexible and collaborative learning environments
- Spaces and technology to support personalized, project-based learning
- Building addition designed to highlight key features of historic Temple Buell design
- Outdoor learning environments for older and younger students
- Complex renovation and addition with a multi-step phased approach to construction

The Manzanola PK-12 Addition & Renovation project has been recognized for:

2022 Educators' Choice Award and the Summit Merit Award from The Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) Rocky Mountain Chapter
