A growing school needed to use valuable property in hand for additional, modern classroom space. Our challenge was to convert a four family apartment building into the new 5th and 6th Grade Center and make it appear a part of a cohesive campus. The result? Artful awnings and lighting adorn the facades of the school and the new center to establish a beautiful presence on Hanley Road. This project typifies our approach to environmental stewardship through repurposing sound existing structures into new uses by unorthodoxed planning strategies. The teachers appreciate how the space functions, and even the students think our plan for the classrooms, science lab, and patio is cool - as far as school goes.
