From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: Karcher Middle School

March 8, 2023
The project was recognized in the Middle Schools category.

Constructed on the same site as the former building, the new Karcher Middle School in Burlington, Wis., uses the existing topography to its advantage. It has an upper-level entry with dramatic views overlooking the student commons, which serves as the heart of the school. Clerestory windows provide ample daylight to this and other interior rooms. Collaborative, flexible and adaptable learning environments that support future pedagogy—a key project objective—are provided throughout. These principles are supported in art rooms, science labs, core classrooms and electives through the use of easily operated sliding glass partitions, purposeful sight lines and flexible furniture.
