GRANITE RIDGE SCHOOL
COTTAGE GROVE, WI
Monona Grove School District
CLIENT: Eppstein Uhen Architects
The 128,000 square-foot school constructed in 2021 serves over 400 students in grades 3-5. Its interior design is based on three local habitats: woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands.
Each learning neighborhood features a large themed entrance graphic along with a smaller welcome graphic directly inside the neighborhood. Two multi-use areas exhibit graphics combining elements from all three habitats. Colorful native birds, animals, and vegetation are depicted throughout the scenery, functioning as both placemaking and educational pieces.
