Renovation / Addition

This addition abuts an older portion of the Smyrna Elementary School and provides space for essential elements of the school. The addition houses classrooms, labs, administrative space, and media center.

The new exterior is reminiscent of the original building, a beloved community landmark that once stood on this site. The entrance area has an arched portico that recalls the entrance to the earlier building. The circular medallions above the arches were retained when the original building was demolished, and were incorporated into the new design in an effort to recall the history of the earlier structure.

The project includes:
-A media center
-A science lab
-A computer lab
-Five classrooms
-Administrative offices
-A teacher's lounge
-A conference room
-Various support spaces
