Bearing all the features of well-thought arctic design, the Nome Elementary School is raised on insulated piling above the permafrost. Beige metal panels cover the exterior, accented by orange trim and a red roof, bright contrasts against the bleak landscape. The entrances are enclosed and hooded, providing protection from the wind.
