Event Ready

The glass overhead doors that separate the lobby expansion and renovated media center open to create event overflow space.


Grade Level Identities

Interior designers assigned a different color to each grade level pod to promote familiarity and support student navigation. Pictured is the third-grade pod.

Kindergarten Classroom

Classrooms offer flexible furniture and full-height markerboards that allow teachers to present materials at students’ eye level. Clerestory windows along the corridor bring natural light into the space without distracting classroom activities.

Memorialized in LEGO

Legat, Russell, and RTM Engineering Consultants presented to Galesburg CUSD #205 a LEGO version of the renewed King Elementary School. The model has about 2,500 pieces.
