Rex Bell Elementary School

Evocative of a time when Las Vegas gained early notoriety as a destination for both locals and celebrities to share in newly established neighborhoods in an otherwise desolate community, the Rex Bell Elementary School celebrates the memory of place through a variety of design considerations. Named after the celebrated actor and noted politician, the facility recalls an era in which he was most active through subtle design references to mid-century modernism.


The scope of work included site improvements, as well as, new parking areas, curb cut realignments, playgrounds and equipment, and bus drop-off area. New construction, demolition and removal of previous site amenities and buildings were phased in order to keep the existing operations uninterrupted for the school year. The Rex Bell Elementary School replacement received the 2017 AIA Nevada Citation Award.
