Willie Brown Middle School

Willie Brown Middle School – 2055 Silver Ave, San Francisco

We are excited to be the landscape architects for the campus of the new Willie Brown Middle School located at the corner of Silver and Revere Streets in the Bayview District of San Francisco. Recently opened in the Fall of 2015, the school incorporates sustainable design features inside of the new buildings and throughout the campus. Students will benefit from new state-of-the-art science laboratory facilities, beautiful academic classrooms, a program for arts and music, and a campus environment offering opportunities for active interaction.

Our design provides for large gatherings of the entire school community in the central “Olive Grove” courtyard, learning opportunities in the extensive outdoor garden, a native garden fed by the school's rainwater harvest cistern, a terraced outdoor performance space, and a multipurpose ball court area adjacent to the new school gymnasium. Permeable pavements are used in the courtyard, amphitheater, and on-site parking facilities. The Design-Build team has worked to create a school that values the full development of its student population and will provide the students and the community with a wellness center offering healthcare and dental care services.
