In the Museum District, space is at a premium. That’s why the Presbyterian School of Houston off Oakdale and Main is building a 46,000-square-foot space built up four stories rather than sprawling out, said Mark Carleton, school headmaster.


Instead of a boxy structure, Carleton describes the new $18 million elementary school as more of a building splayed open, one with a lot of glass that brings in natural light and mirrors the aesthetic of the nearby Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Flexible learning spaces will be prominent throughout the building.


The new school will open by fall 2019. San Francisco-based architecture firm Gensler designed the building while Houston-based W.S Bellows Construction Corp. is the contractor.


It’s the first expansion in 15 years for the school for children ages 3 to eighth grade. Currently, the 575 students learn in classrooms within the First Presbyterian Church. When the new building is complete, renovations will begin for the middle school, which will remain inside the church.
