Challenge: Create an economical, efficient, and inspiring new junior high school for 900 students in Seymour, Tennessee.

Solution: Designed from the ground up to accommodate 900 junior high school students, grades 6 through 8, the new Seymour Junior High School will be located adjacent to Seymour High School.  The design for the school creates an independent identity, yet complements the adjacent existing high school architecture.  Natural light, energy efficiency, and interior learning environments are given due attention to create inspired spaces for young adult learning.  The school floor plan is composed to address intuitive faculty control and building safety.  The design also allows for easy expansion up to 1,200 students.
