The 39 module two story addition was designed to include all amenities currently contained in the existing school including architectural finishes, mechanical and electrical systems, energy management, data and life safety. The new connecting corridor runs perpendicular to the addition, along the original wall of classrooms that faced the school yard.

The design used the existing brick face and windows as one wall of the new corridor by adding support posts for the corridor roof between the windows, and added large windows to the other side giving the now interior spaces, daylighting and views.

The modular addition has brick detailing to match the existing school, along with clear anodized architectural aluminum panels on the corridor face and on the corner entrance ways. The interior is brightly finished and has abuse resistant, painted gypsum board, acoustical ceilings and vinyl tile floors.
