Cascade High School

The Everett School District and DYKEMAN worked in collaboration to modernize eight buildings and develop a strong and unifying identity for the Cascade High School campus. Due to tight schedule and budget parameters the project was designed and built in four phases. This phasing allowed the work to be completed while the students were on site.

Building and technology systems were modernized to provide a state of the art facility. There were a variety of user groups including students, faculty, and community whose goals needed to be met.

The existing and expanded buildings were unified through strong planar forms - especially in the roof planes and covered walkways. The inspiration for the forms was taken from the school’s namesake, the Cascade Mountains that extend toward the eastern sky.
