    New Day School

New Day School is a preschool in southeast Portland based in Neo-Humanist philosophy helping children see interconnections and develop deep love and respect for all. We applied Passive House principles to transform two older, inefficient school buildings into healthy learning environments that foster a connection to the outdoors, a sense of community, and a feeling of tranquility and security. With the addition of a 45.5-KW rooftop solar array, New Day became Oregon's first Zero Energy preschool. One year post-occupancy, it's actually producing more energy than it consumes on an annual basis.

Our team deliberately chose healthy building materials such as low VOC-paints and finishes, as well as fixtures designed for children, such as smaller toilets and sinks. New Day School serves as an example of how a unified design build process can deliver buildings with the highest craft, comfort and performance within the smallest of ecological footprints.
