The School District needed to completely renovate the interior of an existing 50 year old facility and add a 4,966 sq. ft. two-story addition all in a time frame of just 8 months. The architect designed the school addition to match the existing school, fitting well in to this densely populated urban community. The exterior is finished in face brick with a featured area of architectural aluminum panels that matched the schools signage. The top façade was created by NRB using parapets added at the site to match the existing elevations.
In addition, the building had projected as well as cantilevered areas, the variations of which gave the front elevation an architecturally impressive and unique appearance. The large aluminum frame glazed curtain wall system allows ample day-lighting and view for those classroom spaces. Interior features included tiled hallway walls, painted drywall, suspended acoustical ceilings, and poured terrazzo floors in the corridors.
