About the Project
This prominent new classroom building on the Piedmont High School campus includes 20 classrooms supporting a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) curriculum. Art rooms and engineering labs include adjacent outdoor teaching spaces. The building was designed to fit on a small campus with limited available space for expansion with a vernacular that reflects the existing 1920s buildings. While the architecture is contextual, the building includes design features that are highly sustainable and energy efficient with the ultimate goal of achieving Zero Net Energy (ZNE). Vega Series actuators are used on awning windows.
