This middle school addition entails a new reception area and entrance foyer for the entire middle school, 5 classrooms, 1 art room, 1 music room, a multipurpose gymnasium cafeteria, boys and girls toilets, a warming kitchen and ancillary support facilities. Our aesthetic approach to speak to and complement, but not mimic the existing 1950's middle school building. The existing facility lacks a true point of arrival: accordingly we establish a new primary entrance at the juncture of the old and new wings. The parti entails surounding the larger, multi-purpose room with classrooms in order to provide natural light and ventilation for classrooms at the periphery, while providing ambient natural light at the multi-purpose room via a translucent panel clerestory surround. A new control point is created at the knuckle between the old and new buildings with views to the new entrance and existing corridor.
