Bayview Elementary School

Vancouver, BC

Bayview Elementary is a replacement school in the Kitsilano neighbourhood. The new school, currently nearing completion, is a two-storey, mass-timber structure of approximately 3460 sm.
The spatial arrangement of the program is compact and resourceful. The flexible learning arrangements include corridor learning commons and operable walls to combine classrooms. The all-wood structure uses CLT panels and glulam beams, as well as columns that allow for fast erection of the superstructure, and an efficient use of the small site.
