KING school academic center
In a double-height volume formerly used as a gymnasium and stage, an academic center was created that links the library, visual arts and academic programs together in the center of the upper school. An opening was made to connect the double-height volume with the second story, and within that opening a new elevator and ornamental staircase brings natural daylight and activity into the new hub. A mezzanine surrounding the academic center serves as a gallery and informal meeting space, and provides access to a stepped lecture hall, the cafeteria, and adjacent fitness rooms.
