Masons Cove Elementary

Location: Roanoke, VA

Masons Cove Elementary was designed after a feasibility study showed that improvements and additions to the original ‘60s school would cost 75% of the price for an entirely new school. Roanoke County chose the opportunity to build a new state-of-the-art facility honored with being the first school in Roanoke County to achieve LEED certification. With an emphasis on sustainable features such as geothermal wells, pervious pavements, solar orientation for optimum daylighting, solar hot water, and polished concrete floors, Masons Cove achieved a LEED Gold rating.

The school was aesthetically designed to complement its mountainous surroundings. The exterior materials palette, colors and rooftop shapes were chosen with the neighboring tree-covered mountains in mind. The interior design theme, inspired by Masons Cove’s Eagle mascot, evokes a feeling a soaring amongst the sky, mountains and trees.
