Cascade High School Replacement and Modernization
Cascade School District
Leavenworth, Washington
The Cascade High School is a new-in-lieu replacement of all classrooms, library, administrative spaces, art, music and performing arts, including a commons and stage that serve as a theatrical venue for Leavenworth. The project also modernizes the existing gymnasiums and locker rooms and reorganizes the site to enhance student and community access. Materials respond to the alpine context to create a substantive and inviting presence lacking in the existing facility. The building form conforms to and climbs the varying natural grade of the site to create dramatic view moments to the surrounding mountains and forest as students navigate between classes.
