Marin Primary & Middle School

November 20, 2014
Marin Primary & Middle School is a K-8 grade independent day school located on an eight acre site on the border between Larkspur and Corte Madera in Marin County. Anticipating a growth in the student population, the campus master plan creates a more cohesive campus, as well as designates new and renovated facilities to support enrollment.

The master plan includes a new multipurpose room and covered outdoor area; new play areas and amphitheater; new middle school classrooms and science room; new preschool lobby/entry; renovated after school space; renovated classrooms/breakout room; and ADA/accessibility upgrades to the middle school and play areas.

The campus is planned with numerous sustainable initiatives including:

  • Low-water native landscape plantings
  • Increased permeable paving on campus walkways
  • Rainwater harvesting system
  • A new Multipurpose Room designed with natural ventilation, daylighting strategy with solar control elements, photovoltaic roof panels, a geothermal energy source with hydronic heating, use of locally-sourced materials, and high-recycled fly ash or slag concrete
