Marin Primary and Middle School

Marin Primary and Middle School    Larkspur, California

Marin Primary and Middle School is a Pre-K through 8th grade school in Larkspur, California. The school engaged Miller Company to help them reinvent their school yard to provide their students with a richly varied, imaginative space in which play and learning come together. A central amphitheater takes advantage of the site’s natural grade to provide an outdoor gathering area. An active play zone provides age-appropriate play structures, swings, a sand play area with an adjacent raised water play channel, and a custom play house. Alleys of trees and a series of arbors add a canopy of shade, creating small gathering spaces and lending continuity across the site.
