Duke Lower and Middle Schools – Wood Balances Cost and Environmental Objectives in Durham

Duke Lower and Middle Schools – Durham, NC

When DTW Architects & Planners and Fielding Nair International signed on to design Duke School, they faced the same challenge school boards and design teams face across the country: how to balance cost, functionality and environmental objectives while creating an enriching space that inspires learning. The response from students, teachers and the community is a testament to their achievement.
