Tour Details:
Des Moines Elementary School – The expansive sunlit foyer welcomes the tour into a warm and
engaging school. Participants will experience the vibrant nature of the space gazing upward to a
high ceiling with beautiful wood beams, ample wooden benches, and an engaging underwater
mural scene that encompasses the entire wall. Playful, whimsical shapes, and colorful salmon
are scattered across the floor and repeated throughout the school, creating curious anticipation
of what lies ahead.   The tour will begin with a brief overview and response to questions inside
the lobby in which the administrative area, kindergarten playground, and wetlands are all within
Roosevelt Elementary School- Beginning at the entry sequence and carried throughout the interiors, the
important themes of visibility, safety, flexibility, and identity are featured. This school received a full
modernization inside and out, including vehicle circulation, to serve families and surrounding
community. Beginning on the exterior plaza, the visage, words, and interests of Theodore Roosevelt, the
school’s namesake, create a vibrant representation of the school’s identity. Each pod portal has custom
panels with glowing natural foliage and famous quotes by Roosevelt and each pod is identified by a local
natural element inspired by Roosevelt: heron, salmon, and the Roosevelt elk.
