Aidlin Darling Design

Roseland University Prep is a small college-preparatory charter high school in the heart of Roseland, a community of adversity and need in Santa Rosa, CA. The building design takes inspiration from the agrarian barns of the farms surrounding the site, their gabled forms both contextually appropriate and economically efficient. Throughout the school, the focus is on the experience of the students, from the flow and eddies of circulation and gathering to the deliberate exposure to light and nature. Warm and textured interior finish materials reflect the school’s nurturing qualities. Multifunction circulation spaces and a large interior amphitheater create spaces for students and teachers to meet casually, as well as for formal teaching or community gatherings, reinforcing the family-like nature of the Roseland school community. The resulting design creates a strong identity for the school that is open and inviting, warm and nurturing, a beacon of education and promise.

About the organization

Aidlin Darling Design bridges the demands of artistic endeavor, environmental responsibility, functional pragmatics, and financial considerations. As a multidisciplinary firm, we believe that innovations discovered through the process of design and construction can be applied to projects of any scale, use, or purpose.

Partners Joshua Aidlin and David Darling have cultivated a team that strives to deliver the highest level of project management, service, and design. Our approach is client and site specific, and questions conventional assumptions. A collaborative process with clients, consultants, fabricators, and builders allows an open and impassioned exploration and enables a clear understanding of appropriate solutions. In each project, we seek to uncover an inherent spirit of place and interpret constraints as catalysts for performative design. The individual character of each project emerges through poetic spatial relationships, material richness, and exacting detail.
