This addition and renovation project expanded facilities for Alamo Heights High School's band, chorale, orchestra, and percussion programs, while meshing with the existing campus vernacular. The building also provides a direct link between practice facilities and the High School's new state-of-the-art auditorium, also designed by OCO Architects, Inc. The design incorporated unique sustainability solutions such as an ice storage cooling system with ice made only during off-peak hours. The building also ties into the High School's rooftop photo-voltaic solar array. Natural lighting challenges presented by the building orientation and acoustic needs were solved by including clerestory windows that allow for North/South day-lighting without compromising acoustic integrity.
