Date of Completion: August 2011 | Area: 20,000 SF
The expansion of Brookings High School includes a new commons/cafeteria and kitchen/servery organized 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 project is a 2012 AIA South Dakota Design Merit Award winner.
