Town of Weston
Field Elementary School

Architect

Jonathan Levi

The new Field Elementary School was constructed following the demolition of the existing school building on the same site in Weston, MA. The new building consists of a “core” featuring a gymnasium, cafetorium, kitchen, administrative offices, music room, study center, and ancillary spaces, and two one-story classroom wings. A bright interior courtyard provides seating for outdoor school gatherings and assemblies.

The Odeh team, in our second collaboration with JLA architects, engineered the structure using systems of steel framing and economical light gauge steel loadbearing studs. The team carefully coordinated the framing members, many of which are exposed to view, to integrate with the mechanical and architectural systems. This integrated design approach resulted in a highly economical design.

The project was selected as a finalist for the Boston Society of Architects 2013 Harleston Parker Medal for the Most Beautiful Building in Greater Boston.
