AUSTIN, TEXAS | 10,000 SF
Big ideas are bound to be born in the bright and innovative learning space. GSC Architects GSC was commissioned to create a new 10,000 SF classroom building at Lee Elementary School. The light-filled, flexible learning spaces exceed some of the biggest goals set for 21st-century learning spaces. The sliding wall between the front two academic classrooms will provide endless learning possibilities and new ways to engage students. Built around the heritage trees, the giant windows in the art and music classrooms offer a bounty of light, an endless supply of inspiration, and exciting new spaces to create. Open hallways connect the entire building with windows and built-in storage for all.
Originally built in 1939, Lee Elementary School is centrally located just a few blocks north of the University of Texas campus. This neighborhood school maintains a multitude of longstanding traditions with a focus on the arts and social and emotional learning. To help meet these needs and to help bring the campus up to modern standards GSC Architects also led a large renovation of the existing mechanical system, auditorium, and administration area at the main entrance.
