The challenge of positioning a large theatre, gallery, and additional classrooms in a prominent location on the school’s campus was addressed by both depressing the mass of the building into the naturally sloping grade, and by separating the program and creating new outdoor spaces. A classroom addition is positioned at the end of an existing classroom corridor and overlooks an exterior theatre courtyard. The theatre and gallery spaces, depressed gracefully into the site, are accessed by an entry plaza with an open colonnade, but also through an underground connection from a communicating staircase in the classroom addition. The overall massing and scale are further diminished by the use of environmentally friendly horizontal siding materials that reference the existing campus vocabulary.
