Marshall Moya Design was commissioned by Building Hope to create designs for a new charter school in Nevada. The design is part of the organization's "Opportunity 180" initiative, which seeks to launch high-performing public charter schools in deserving communities across the country.
In Nevada, the two-phased project encompasses two floors with a total area of 87,680 sq. ft. In addition to 28 total classrooms, the design includes office space, teacher's lounges, an auditorium and interior green spaces.
