Roosevelt High School Renovation was done by Bassetti Architects

Roosevelt High School Renovation was done by Bassetti Architects in 2006
The original Roosevelt High School building, a landmarked three-story Georgian-style building in Seattle, was built in 1921. Renovation of Roosevelt High School focused on rehabilitation of the historic structure, with a 120,000 SF addition that complements the massing, scale and materials of the original building
The new daylit student commons, which acts as a lobby for the new gymnasium and theater, is adjacent to a plaza overlooking the athletic field and territorial views of Seattle. The plaza serves as a protected exterior gathering space pulled back from the street. Roosevelt’s extraordinary performing arts program is supported with the provision of a new 750-seat theater, an intimate 150-seat black box performance space, and numerous teaching, rehearsal and support spaces. Academic areas are organized into eight small learning communities surrounding a daylit library at the core of the historic structure. Each learning community has dedicated classrooms, science labs, teacher planning areas and small group spaces. Since 1947, Bassetti Architects has been the architect for many well-loved and long-lived Seattle buildings. Bassetti Architects continues this legacy of working with public and non-profit agencies to provide meaningful, enduring and functional buildings. Contact them at
