Tullahoma, TN

1st Place TSBA School of the Year Award Winner – 2004 Middle School New Construction

The site consists of approximately 34 acres that offered design challenges to incorporate the necessary amenities in coordination with the new building itself. The design has a 2’8″ elevation change within the building. Other design concerns included coordination of the site design with a new road that would be constructed during the same time period as the school project.

The most notable feature of the building is the vaulted main entry. The main entry canopy extends through the entry into the foyer and continues on through the student dining area. The main entrance storefront and metal entry design is repeated throughout the vaulted area. Glass block is featured in the main corridor intersections. Exterior brick and stone create a contrast to accent distinctive part of the interior such as classrooms, entrances and the gymnasium.
