Valley View Middle School
Snohomish, WA

Striving for the Living Building Challenge design standards, this project treats all stormwater onsite using porous pavements and rain gardens. Sustainable site features act as a part of the curriculum and educate visitors to the school. Stormwater collection and reuse is demonstrated both inside and outside the building when stormwater overflows from a collection vault and expressed as a water cascade feature at the main entry to the school.
