Almost 15 years later, Young is the system director for facilities and construction for the nonprofit health system, which […]

By December 2021, Alliance’s Broadstone Nations was welcoming tenants into the 343-unit complex—a mix of studio and one- […]

Ellie Daneshnia – Highline Public Schools

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Young people being the future of any community, schools should be built to be safe, modern and inviting. Yet during the 1950s and ‘60s, many districts hastily constructed California-style, concrete-block schoolhouses—ones that bandages and remodels couldn’t sustain forever.  This has been the case at Highline Public Schools in King County, Washington, though that may be […]
