Redbud Elementary School

Client: Round Rock Independent School District
Market: K-12 Education
Discipline: Architecture + Interiors
Project Area: 122,340 sq. ft.

Awards: Learning By Design Magazine’s Fall 2022 Architectural & Interior Design Outstanding Project Award, 2022-23 Exhibit of School Architecture Caudill Award 

The Round Rock ISD opened the doors to Redbud Elementary School students in the 2021-2022 school year. The district’s 35th elementary school’s name and overall goals were inspired by the school’s location near Old Settlers Park, which is home to numerous redbud trees.
The district’s architectural objective was to create an inspired learning environment for students and staff, incorporating contemporary learning delivery concepts. PBK talent with builder and district collaborations, created an extraordinary elementary school with biophilic vernacular and detailing, that is truly beautiful, inspirational and functional.

At the heart of the school sits a giant redbud tree with branches connecting to all three wings. The concept for the school was inspired by biophilic design that simulates elements from nature and connects the students to the natural world. The new Redbud Elementary School is filled with sensory experiences in a fun, colorful and exciting learning environment for the Round Rock Community. The school incorporates six learning communities, each with their own teacher planning rooms, small group rooms and collaboration areas.

The new two-story elementary school holds a capacity of 900 people providing the students and Round Rock community with a state of the art 21st century environment. Learning Neighborhoods house studios for all grade levels along with collaboration areas, small group rooms, a Professional Learning Center, makerspace, as well as classrooms for visual arts and music, a gymnasium, dining commons, and a community room. Administrative offices are located on the first floor adjacent to the media center.

Redbud Elementary School is the first school in the State of Texas with features specifically designed to respond to the challenges COVID-19 presents to a school environment.
