Townville, SC


Addition: 20,500 SF
Renovation: 25,500 SF

The two biggest challenges on this renovation project were to construct a new kitchen and gymnasium on a tight site AND to create an entrance for the gymnasium that is separate from the school to allow community usage during non-school hours.

The first task of the project was to complete a new kitchen and cafeteria so the existing cafeteria and gymnasium could be demolished. The new entrance to the full-size gymnasium is a cube clad in metal panels designed to contrast the cylindrical entrance to the school, also clad in metal. The brightly colored glass reflects playfully on the interior surfaces during the day and serves as a beacon for evening events.
