The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation planned a new elementary school based on the previously constructed McCordsville Elementary School. The school was designed to blend with its location in a commercial/industrial corridor. Though the new elementary school was based on a previous plan, the exterior was altered to fit the rural and residential character of the contextual surroundings, producing a unique and individual identity. Using the principle that no two schools are the same and no two schools have to look the same, the project answered the needs of Mt. Comfort Elementary School by using different materials, colors, and canopy treatments to give a consistent, yet unique individual identity.
