The Northwest School to reveal rooftop sports field, gymnasium

The Northwest School will open a $19 million facility on Monday in Capitol Hill that includes a gymnasium and a rooftop sports field. Check out this video of the rooftop sports field, which is the highest and largest of any school in Seattle.

The facility, at 401 East Pike Street, also includes a 175-seat black box theater and a two-tiered dining room.

“Our goal was to design not only a beautiful building that supports our interdisciplinary program but one that would operate sustainably in a tight urban environment,” NWS Head of School Mike McGill said in a statement. “We maximized every inch of space to pack program into the smallest footprint; we recycled soil and building materials, installed energy monitoring devices, and landscaped with native plantings. It’s a celebration of urban living and sustainability.”
