Built as a focal point and a defining element, the 4,100 square foot Porter Gaud Kindergarten building establishes a new design vocabulary for the Lower School campus. The sheltering hipped roof with broad eaves sits on brick structure topped with a cast stone water table and a stucco band sitting on a low cast stone base. Pairs of steel columns protrude from each brick and stone pier to create a deep porch that doubles as an access ramp to the existing Lower School.
The building interior is defined by four classrooms, one large common room, rest rooms, and offices. Each classroom features a child-scaled loft with reading above and computer alcove below.
