The project was recognized in the Middle Schools category.

Renovations at Dempsey Middle School in Delaware, Ohio, consisted of a two-story academic corridor with a flex lab; an orchestra performing space also was built. The addition juxtaposes the traditional design of the existing building with contemporary architecture and materials. The new flex space acts as an extended learning area during school hours and as an after-school program space at the day’s end. The room has a fun, energetic atmosphere that incorporates colorful, soft seating, activity tables, and two learning walls that boast large televisions and marker boards. The orchestra addition is a large, two-story space shaped to enhance acoustics. Acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling create an ideal environment, enabling sound to bounce and dissipate.
