Additions and Renovations | Fort Mitchell, KY
Faced with adding onto a deteriorating, but beloved, elementary school building, the challenge was to provide a master plan to replace the school over multiple phases, while keeping the character of the original structure and complementing the nearby, time-honored neighborhood. Through several stages of construction, a new facility has emerged that provides for the needs of tomorrow while acknowledging the past traditions of the school. Geothermal heating and cooling, as well as energy-efficient lighting on sensors, have brought greater efficiency to the school. A new commons with north-facing glass brings welcome daylight to students. Improved circulation through connecting corridors has helped traffic flow and zoning within the facility, with provisions for future growth also established. The community has embraced the facility as it maintains the traditional character of the original school.
