CMAA North Texas highlights projects each year that celebrate excellence in the built environment. Recently Awarded in collaboration with Corgan Architects, the Dallas Independent School District needed assistance recreating their 40-acre site after severe tornado damage. The Walnut Hill International Learning Academy and Jefferson High School will be the new schools on campus.
Walnut Hill International Learning Academy will be a new 126,000 SF facility, with capacity to offer language immersion programs for 800 students, replacing the existing Edward H. Cary Middle School.
Jefferson High School offers a variety of student-centered spaces for academics, arts, and athletics. Academics are supported by robotics, computer, STEAM labs, culinary arts and ROTC classrooms; as well as a library. For the arts there is a modern band room and seven additional practice rooms, dance studios, black box theatre, and upgraded auditorium. Athletics feature trainer and hydrotherapy rooms; a weight room; locker rooms; and a competition gym which also serves as the storm shelter. Additionally, family/youth counseling services are provided within the facility.
Congratulations to the design teams, and thank you to CMAA for this great honor!
