Date Completed: 1999

 

The challenge presented in this renovation was to unite three distinct buildings and to form a single unified school.  The circulation space has been rationalized to create a sense of openness between the three building forms The introduction of natural light by cutting new skylights at strategic locations in the central gathering space and main circulation corridor eliminates the somber interiors that existed prior to the renovation.  What was once a divided series of congested spaces has been converted to a comfortable, functional living building.
