North Thurston Public Schools, Salish Middle School

This two-story school was designed to meet the needs for long-term space flexibility and functionality. Prominent is the Commons, an expansive, central gathering space that forms the heart of the school and features a large screen and projection system with acoustical panels. Challenges included designing for intelligibility in this 7,500 SF, two-story volume as well as configuring the audio-video system to function collaboratively with the natural light that streams through floor to ceiling glazing.

Greenbusch as a subconsultant to BCRA, was the Acoustical Designer and performed Audio/Video Design Engineering.
