SUNSHINE COTTAGE SCHOOL FOR

DEAF CHILDREN

San Antonio, TX

 

The Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children is a private auditory/oral school for grades K-5.  The building was designed to blend in with the existing site through the addition of natural materials such as stone, masonry, and wood.  The use of galvanized metal adds a modern element and glass let in an ample amount of natural light providing a connection to the outside landscape.

Rialto Studio designed the outdoor spaces to feel inviting and provide a comfortable place for the students to learn.  A small ampitheater with limestone block seating and a flagstone stage area set the as a rich and active environment.  Other site amenities include outdoor classrooms, a nature trail and playing fields, giving plenty of opportunity for outdoor learning.  These amenities are set into a native planting design that helps to blend the building with the site.
