From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: Hillside Middle School, Addition and Renovation

May 9, 2023
The project was recognized in the Middle Schools category.

Formerly a high school, Hillside Middle School in Northville, Mich., provides a flexible learning environment for students in grades six to eight. A unique feature of the school is its “community-centric” design—fostering small communities within the larger school community based on grade levels. Collaboration zones were designed to offer a balance between supervision and independence while collaborative learning takes place. In the heart of the school, a multifunctional high-bay space forms the student commons, incorporating an elevated stage area with theatrical lighting for presentations and plays, and built-in bench seating to socialize with classmates.
