    We are honored that the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) Rocky Mountain Chapter awarded the Lake City Community School with the Summit Design Award for Renovations! Constructed on the site of the original 1880s brick school house, the Lake City Community School is a PK-12 school serving students in the Hinsdale County School District and is one of the earliest schools on Colorado’s Western Slope.

    RTA worked closely with the District and the Lake City community to design an addition and renovation to enhance security, health, and safety of staff and students while still maintaining the character of the historic school site and neighborhood. The design team also highlighted the breathtaking natural beauty of Hinsdale County throughout the interior of the building. Read more about this incredible project here.

We are excited to be bringing this project to a close!

    The Lake City Community Schoolwas reunited with its historic cupola last week. The cupola dates to 1884 and was originally part of the Hiram C. Kelly estate in Cheyenne, Wyoming. After a refresh, the clock was hoisted aloft and set in place where it will continue to serve as a landmark to the city for years to come.
