"One in five children have learning differences. Yet most schools are not designed with neurodiversity in mind, which hinders learning for students with dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia. The design of the Lower School campus of Westmark School—which supports students with language-based learning differences—creates an inclusive, welcoming and nature-infused environment, featuring mass timber and other natural materials. Gathered around a grand California Sycamore tree and designed to be net zero, the project aligns the architectural vision to the highly specialized education and individualized instructional model of Westmark School. This includes physical accommodations for right-sized classrooms and learning environments that provide flexibility, healthy daylight and air quality, as well as movement, proper sound attenuation and shaded open space with opportunities for outdoor learning."
