From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: The Westminster Schools, Barge Commons

Feb. 7, 2023
Jurors awarded the project a Citation in the Specialized Facility category.

Situated at the main entrance to the Upper School Campus of Westminster School in Atlanta, Barge Commons acts as a gateway to the historic grounds and mitigates a 14-foot grade change between the entrance road and the main campus quadrangle. The project houses six general purpose classrooms so that classes can be held synchronously with conferencing events. Two large-scale gathering areas, one at the lower level, and one at the level of the main quadrangle, act as hubs to the building. These spaces are designed to be flexible to support varied activities and to foster intellectual exchange within the building.
