This 1,200 student 5-8 middle school was designed to provide a highly controllable and flexible mechanism to provide for unity and cohesion across the student population as well as separation between the grades as appropriate for scheduling and activity type. The figure eight shape allows for efficient circulation and adjacencies towards that end in order to serve home rooms, subject based classrooms, and the more public function areas such as the two gymnasia, auditorium and library. The efficacy of this configuration has also allowed for the effective simultaneous use by the community at large. For these reasons, amongst others, the school was recognized by AS&U as a national middle school prototype. Two landscaped inner courtyards provide natural light and inspiration to the building's core. Dramatic, multi-story spaces provide an airiness and inspiration at areas such as the library. The project was delivered within highly stringent budget parameters. Accordingly, finishes were left simple but elegant.
