Alta Vista Middle School

The Alta Vista Middle School occupies the ground floor of a seven-level building on Mission Street between 21st and 22nd Streets in San Francisco. The facility is a combination of residential, commercial, and educational uses. The project consisted of classrooms, offices, meeting areas, and specialty spaces for art, science, drama, and music rooms, with construction divided into two phases to accommodate the permitting process.


Phase 1 was completed at the end of Summer 2016, and included the central school facilities, circulation, and the “Suite 1” building lobby/entry, seven classrooms, and multi-purpose space.


Phase 2 was completed at the end of Summer 2017, and included finishing the “Suite 2” specialty classrooms, theatrical commons, and administrative offices.
