H.D. Cooke Elementary School

This aged city school, which was originally constructed in 1909, was in desperate need of modernization. Through a design-build partnership, QEA repurposed the historic school and expanded the facility through an efficient and elegant design solution which maximized use of the tight site. With a LEED Gold Rating under LEED for Schools, the resulting project is a high performance 21st century educational facility which exemplifies green design while maintaining and improving the school's connection to the surrounding Adams Morgan neighborhood.
