St. Joseph's Academy - Science Center
The program for this private girls high school required a new 17,800 sf state of the art lab facility which integrates the latest computer technology. The design also provides a flexible teaching environment for the ever-changing demands of this excellent academic program. The lab "island" casework was custom designed to seat six to eight students. Movable tables at the perimeter can be used for an alternate lecture environment. Special attention was paid to campus master planning and contextual issues in order to provide timeless architecture that is respectful of the existing environment. The new Science Center references the existing architecture while providing modern forms and details and reflecting its true age.
