Two Rivers Public Charter School is a network of high-performing public charter schools in Washington DC. The new middle school at Young campus, designed by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture, is a state-of-the-art facility featuring large classrooms, dedicated common space, a full-sized gymnasium, outdoor courts and the signature ‘sitting steps’ in the foyer. This school serves 6th through 8th graders and is connected to the existing elementary school via an elevated bridge. Special instruction rooms include art, drama, music, Spanish, science lab, and breakout instructional spaces.

Project is located in a designated Anacostia Watershed zone which requires additional stormwater management measures. In order to meet the requirements on the tight site, we maximized the green roof of the building by:
· Implementing a cantilevered corner which maximizes the 2nd floor roof plane and thus also enabling the sloped light monitor.
· We also elevated the mechanical equipment to allow for green roof below.
· All outdoor play areas are designed to be permeable including the rubberized play surface and a modular tiled basketball court while still allowing recess program.

Cost Saving Measures: Kept the existing gym floor and repaired and damaged areas, it has been beautifully restored and carries the history of the space. Utilized a portion of the existing building for elective classrooms to save cost and work with the program.
The Bridge: Physically connecting the two buildings was arrived at through investigation. It made the most sense for the school programmatically and with the running of infrastructure from the existing building. The schools share a kitchen and nurse’s suite, avoiding redundant program saved cost and gave more learning space to the students.
The corner cantilever of the building helped us achieve multiple objectives: Covered outdoor seating area for students waiting before school or for classes to gather during school, a larger green roof footprint, more play space behind the building because the building can cover a portion of the dropoff circle, and a more welcoming less intrusive face to the street.
