From the 2022 Educational Interiors Showcase: Tampa Heights Elementary Magnet School

The design was recognized in the Interior Renovation category.

Built in 1906 by volunteers, Tampa Heights Elementary Magnet School in Tampa, Fla., was severely damaged in 2017 by a fire. The exterior masonry walls were salvaged and restored, and a new internal tectonic steel structure was designed to hold the brickwork in place. A two-story floating addition was constructed between the existing wings. The void between the existing footprint and addition becomes the vertical community organized around a central stair connecting all three levels. The dynamic relationship between the contemporary interior and historic exterior imbues the school with a renewed energy.
