Roland-Story Multi-Purpose Room

Needs:

  • A middle school requiring a larger space for assemblies, physical education, community events, and athletic competition.

Challenges:

  • Providing a truly multi-purpose facility able to accommodate a wide range of school and community activities.
  • Fitting an addition into an existing school building both programmatically and aesthetically.

Solution:

  • The design utilized a precast concrete and masonry structure which took several design cues from the existing building, including repetition of forms.
  • Materials used to finish the spaces can accommodate many kinds of use and the multi-purpose space can be manipulated to conform to unique uses.
