The modernization of Chapel Hill High School involved the demolition of two classroom buildings, the construction of two connector buildings between remaining buildings, and the creation of a large courtyard for outdoor learning.
Designed to promote an interactive learning environment, classrooms are strategically situated adjacent to extended learning areas, which serve as collaboration and breakout space. Career and technical education spaces are dispersed throughout the facility. The media center boasts daylighted views to the learning courtyard and provides a vibrant space for collaboration.
Interior brick walls connect the outside to the inside and foster a sense of structure and sophistication, and varying ceiling heights define spaces without the need for walls, contributing to increased flexibility.
Overall, the updated high school campus provides a true 21st-century learning environment and offers students a more modern, collegiate atmosphere.
