Galtier Elementary

Saint Paul, Minnesota

A 3,000 square foot administrative office addition and 3,500 square foot remodeling for this technology magnet school. The main office was located on a lower level with no visual contact with the school entries. The addition allows the staff to monitor the main and secondary entries, the building exterior and play ground, and allow daylight into their work areas through both on grade and clerestory windows. The choice of concrete, concrete masonry and aluminum sun screens was made to accentuate the technology focus the school.
