Keeping student learning in mind, DLR Group Architecture designed the facility around small learning communities that are connected by walkways. The challenge is that the walkways need to be safely lit while not impacting the surrounding wetlands. Coffman designed custom lit handrails that allow Marysville School District to meet safety requirements for the students while minimizing light trespass to the environment.
