Chinook Middle School was designed to complement and integrate within its surroundings. The predominant use of brick masonry imparts a monumental sense of permanence and the use of full vertical storefront windows break up the linear façade. Metal siding, used on both the exterior and interior provides continuity and a seamless feel at building entry points. Granite cobblestones surround and define seating areas while providing visual interest. Pervious concrete paths throughout the campus are both functional and embody stewardship. The exterior two-tone masonry color palette of the classroom wings breaks down the scale of the buildings, visually presenting them as smaller building elements.
