4 Project DescriptionOriginally housed in a 1930's historic building, Druid Hills High School now occupies three disconnected structures on its confined site in a primarily residential neighborhood in Atlanta. Over the years the school grew to included a free-standing cafeteria building and what was previously an adjacent elementary school.Our addition links the cafeteria and the old elementary school building creating a new facade for the campus. In deference to the original historic building, the new addition pulls away from this existing building and sets it off with a glass corner and set-back entry way. With its window pattern that is a modern recall of the original building's fenestration, the brick facade of the addition curves away further emphasizing the historic structure.The addition includes eight new science labs, four classrooms, and administrative support space.
