From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Black Rock Middle School

Oct. 30, 2023
The Villanova, Pennsylvania project was recognized for its outstanding design in the Common Areas category.

Focusing on guiding principles developed to complement the district’s strategic plan, Black Rock Middle School in Villanova, Pennsylvania, provides a cutting-edge learning environment for grades 5 to 8. The center of the new building is a two-story “heart” space with a gathering stair that opens onto an educational courtyard overlooked by the media center. Other educational spaces include 12 collaborative learning communities, art, science, music, and physical education areas and a state-of-the-art theater.
