Lake Washington School District Resource & Administration Center
This Administration and Resource Center is the physical and electronic
hub for the Lake Washington School District, providing centralized
access for staff, and maximizing the interaction between the school
district and the community it serves. The 60,000 s.f. center is composed
of three unique departments, 33,000 s.f. for Resources, 27,000 s.f.
for Training and Shared Public Resources.
The Departmental Resource area
accommodates the school district's
administration staff, as well as support functions such as the computer
room. Open office workstations promote interaction between departments
and provide flexibility for future changes.
The Training Resource area
is concentrated along a public
commons area, and consists of unique instructional learning and
meeting rooms including a learning classroom/TV production studio
that is used primarily to train teachers and other school district
staff. The training resource is available for public use.
The Shared/Public Resource area
is dispersed throughout the
building, but is focused on the commons area. The commons functions
as an interpretive area, with direct or visual access to the training
and resource functions of the building, informal gathering and study
areas, and informational displays.
