We provided the master planning for this private Christian school, including two campuses: an existing high school campus and a new kindergarten through eight grade campus. The high school requires a new addition for administration and locker rooms. One present issue is the lack of a visual and logical entry point for the campus. The new two story addition will address this with a tectonic shift of the exterior stucco wall with colored indentations and beamed colonnade that expresses entry into the campus. To soften the expanse of exterior wall, a perforated metal screen cascades up to the roof and becomes the screening for the new mechanical units.
The next phase of construction will include the new Academic Center, a 15,000 square foot two story addition that will include new classrooms, offices, library, washrooms and a flexible gathering atrium. Construction is starting and completion is scheduled for 2022.
