Project Description

Founded in 2002, The Girls’ School of Austin provides an intellectually challenging education for girls in a supportive and creative environment. The new campus was constructed to accommodate the growing needs of the school. The 12,400 square foot facility includes a multi-purpose building, art and science classrooms, and multiple gardens and play areas throughout the campus.

The outdoor learning areas make up more than 60% of the campus and include courtyards and rooftop decks. The rooftop deck, made with Bison 2×2 Smooth Ipê Wood Tiles and Versadjust Deck Supports, provides a unique alternative educational space for outdoor learning. The Bison Wood Tiles are manufactured from long lasting, responsibly harvested ipê adding to the sustainability of the project.
