Oak Harbor High School is the only public school for the small Whidbey Island community in Puget Sound and desperately needed modernizing. The original school was characterized by very narrow corridors, classrooms without windows, and roofs without sufficient drainage. The redesigned campus focused on bringing daylight to all classrooms, widening corridors, updating technology, and consolidating the school into three buildings. The design includes a displacement mechanical ventilation system, extensive daylighting, and employs other green building practices such as infiltration gardens and recycling of existing building components.
