Before the demolition of Farrer Elementary, 80-year-old terra-cotta panels and medallions were cut from the building by Doyle Hatfield Masonry. These panels and medallions were incorporated into the new design of the building. Doyle Hatfield Masonry, in conjunction with Brailsford Cast Stone, took molds of the terra-cotta panel systems and made exact replicas of the terra-cotta.

Seeking to honor the building’s original character, the design team utilized chromo chronologies to identify the original pennywise paint color. The new custom-blended paint hue represents a compromise between this historic tone and the contemporary unpainted brick chosen for the adjacent new addition.
