The design of the room provides wayfinding at an appropriate scale for the overall high school building. The media center’s stack area opens directly onto the Great Room and becomes the reading room for the media center. The landmark grand staircase connecting the upper level to the Great Room below will anchor the room and will highlight the underlying importance of the space as a place to see and be seen. The large windows in the offices on the second level provide transparency and promote good stewardship of the space. In addition to the Learning Commons, several innovative student study facilities are provided throughout the school to provide individual or small group study, while still being supervised by a teacher. The school is inwardly-focused with a central courtyard that is accessed from the Learning Commons and the Cafeteria. The courtyard is designed to provide a variety of uses, including large vibrant spaces for social gathering as well as smaller groups settings for studying. The auditorium accommodates 540 spectators for presentations and performances and is a good technical teaching space with wide, safe catwalks and lighting galleries.
