This college preparatory school is committed to providing thought-provoking educational environments that encourage students to achieve their highest potential through spiritual, intellectual and social development. To help achieve this vision, the school desired a vibrant center for learning and a hub of student activities and services. As the final element of a multi-phased new building campaign, the school completed it’s new library and student center. The library and student center is quickly becoming a part of the beloved campus landscape that will meet the needs of the school for years to come.
The new 29,300 two-story facility replaces the existing library and includes the renovation and modernization of the adjacent classroom building. The design team was challenged with seamlessly integrating the addition and the existing building. The new facility complements the existing campus architecture while updating the campus appearance with a more collegial feel. The materials on the first floor were matched to the existing classroom building to provide a continuity of vocabulary at the ground level. The second floor utilizes contemporary materials to bring a more mature presence to the campus.
