Wheeler Middle + High School
A two-story addition and alterations to the existing school provided an economical approach to getting a like-new school through a cost conscientious design approach. The brand-new addition became the nucleus of the educational curriculum. A connector with cafeteria and media center may be secluded from the remainder of the school for use by the public on weekends and off hours. A graphics lab, technology lab, and arts hub are included within the footprint. The existing gym is now adorned with new bleachers and updated locker rooms. Administrative office spaces were reconfigured, and additional offices were added through the conversion of a storage space.

Sustainable and high-performance building standards led to the creation of a green roof adjacent to a science classroom, and new, efficient HVAC and central air systems. Finish updates included a more cheerful color palette for patterned floors and cloud ceilings.
