Lyons Middle/Senior High School
The work at this school took place in three phases. Design strategies included the use of natural daylighting in the corridor space between the gym and the cafetorium—this allowed the space to be converted into a highly utilized social gathering area. The gym, cafetorium and commons were designed to accommodate a wide variety of activities for both school and community groups. The previously hidden entrance to the school was replaced by a salient entrance which connected to a new common area. The addition seamlessly integrated into the existing structure.
