The scope of the extension includes an addition of a gymnasium as well as the renovation of existing programs that include the computer lab, offices and reading rooms. The derived formal expression of the proposed roof playfully engages the existing conditions of the school house.
In addition, by raising and lowering particular points along the folded roof of the gymnasium, maximum lighting conditions enter the existing classrooms. Strategic openings in the proposed form bring natural light into the space.
I worked together with colleagues to iterate through a series of design schemes. I continued developing the project at every stage of the process including plans, sections, elevations, initial structural systems, lighting analysis, digital and physical models and presentation documents.
