Through the mid to late 1990’s,
The school’s existing functional layout dictated that the media center be located at one end of the old building, on a steeply sloping site. To ease construction and control costs, the new media center was designed as a separate building, connected to the existing school with a covered canopy. The plaza created in between the two buildings has become a popular gathering place for students and faculty and serves as the home for a small statue of the school mascot.
|The building’s interior is organized around the large open library space. Behind the circulation desk are located the library office, work room and storage room. The new computer room is located off the library space and remains visually connected to the rest of the building by a window wall.|
