The Aloha Huber Park K-8 School

Aloha, Oregon
Mahlum Architects, Architect of Record

Richard Potestio was the project architect for this Mahlum Architects project. The building incorporates administrative offices, classrooms, a library, commons, and a gymnasium/auditorium.

The building’s classroom wing is divided into pods that cluster 4 classrooms around joint learning spaces. The administration, library and commons are located at the juncture of the classroom wing and the building housing the gym, auditorium and music rooms.

Light is of special concern. Windows are designed with light shelves to reflect light onto the ceilings and deep into the spaces. Clerestory windows in the gym provide balanced non-glare light. Large window walls flood the public spaces with ample light.
