RAWLINS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
CARBON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 1
This unique elementary school replaces three separate schools housing three distinct learning communities.
The new Rawlins Elementary School serves approximately 1,000 children in grades K through 5, plus 135 faculty and staff. The school’s building mass, components, and site orientation were selected to minimize the undesirable aspects of the site’s pervasive wind, and to fit into the natural topography. Its form and design elements take cues from the nearby geologic uplift formation, while apertures frame views of Elk Mountain and other unique vistas. Green practices include significant daylighting, passive solar measures, and use of sustainable/renewable resources.
