Cassell Park Elementary School



  • Independence School District
  • New Construction
  • 69,000 SF
  • $20 Million

Complete project integration, from architectural design to brand development. 

The Independence School District needed a new elementary school to prevent overcrowding and eliminate all mobile trailers used in the district. Named after a community landmark and prestigious community figure, students and staff now have a permanent place to call home at Cassell Park Elementary.

Now Home of the Knights, students and teachers take pride in their newly branded identity, which is displayed throughout the school through prominent graphics. Just like a knight, the school represents a safe, protective space while exploring a more collaborative, flexible approach to learning.

Cassell Park is the first elementary in the district to pilot Project Lead the Way into its curriculum. A makerspace is seamlessly integrated into the media center with a retractable door, making hands-on learning visible for all to see.

Wildcat Aquatics Center


  • Blue Springs School District
  • New Construction

Swim and dive teams at Blue Springs High School now have a state-of-the-art facility to call their home base.

The new building is right down the road from the high school and cohesively branded, exuding school pride with purple and gold accents. Spectators have a birds-eye view over the pool, as athletes line up on the starting blocks for competition meets or practices. The entire space is filled with daylighting and the standard overhead fluorescent lights are elevated through custom metal screens punched through with the wave emblem. A subtle wave pattern was strategically designed as part of the exterior brick wall, greeting visitors and establishing a sense of place. Pickleball and tennis courts are found right outside of the aquatics center, encouraging community use after-hours.
