2014 WMAIA + WMBSLA Honor Award
79 South Pleasant explores how a building can exist as both historic and modern. Through context-inspired materiality and juxtaposition of form, material, and texture, the project carefully establishes relationships between multiple contexts: campus and downtown, old and new, traditional and modern.

A new charter school constructed in two phases, housing 190 students in grades 7-12. The school’s pedagogy is centered around experiential learning in the context of technology, community and the environment, and its rural agricultural setting provides supportive teaching opportunities consistent with the school’s mission. Both phases were constructed at modest budgets with highly ambitious construction schedules.

Renovation and New Construction
This project includes the renovation of an existing building and the addition of a two-story structure, composed of 9,495 SF of additional classrooms, a multi-purpose room, administrative offices, and other spaces. Each of three small gables on the entry side of the building catches the eyes of visitors and frames an important space (Main Entry, Multi-Purpose Room, and Community Kitchen). The scale of the building feels welcoming and approachable to even the smallest students. The building looks and feels like a residence, an important feature that plays into the Montessori philosophy: the school as a home for learning.
