Brookings High School August 2011
Brookings School District
Date of Completion
15,000 square feet (Commons, Kitchen, Servery) 5,000 square feet (Classrooms)
The expansion of Brookings High School includes a new commons/cafeteria and kitchen/ servery organzied in a radial pattern. Large windows allow abundant natural light to saturate the space. Three new classrooms and a student study lounge are also added on the north east corner of the building. Renovated are the existing auditorium, administration and guidance areas. The existing cafeteria becomes a shop and a green room to serve the auditorium. A new entry is established for the existing library from the main corridor of the High School. This main corridor embraces a main street theme, allowing each of the adjacent spaces to have its own identity and to be easily identifiable along the "street".
