Re-Purposing Space to Enhance and Grow a School

Evanston Skokie District 65, Dewey Elementary School, Evanston, IL

In 2007, Cannon Design designed an addition and renovation to Dewey School to accommodate increased enrollment. Facility improvements included a new, larger library, a new main office suite, a secure and easily identifiable main entry, a new kindergarten classroom, an elevator for ADA accessibility, auditorium air conditioning, a new boiler, and new doors and hardware throughout the building. The 8,000 sf addition contains the new library and main office suite, which includes a secure main entry, reception, principal’s office, conference room, work room, nurse’s office, elevator, and multiple storage rooms. Relocation of these spaces from the existing building enabled renovations to create a new kindergarten classroom, another classroom, two offices, and a media storage room.
