From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Crawford High School Performing Arts Center

Oct. 30, 2023
The San Diego, California, facility was recognized as an outstanding design in the Common Areas category.

The Crawford High School Performing Arts Center in San Diego, California, has a 450-seat theater, four performing arts classrooms, 15 standard classrooms, a law court classroom and campus administrative offices. With a large grand stair and bridges, the dynamic three-story atrium physically connects the theater, classrooms and administrative functions vertically and horizontally. Natural light is transmitted into the atrium through curtain wall, storefront and clerestory windows. The common space additionally serves as a pre-function space, a place for gatherings, announcements, and assemblies that contains flexible collaborative areas with visual displays. This inviting space encourages student use, interaction and social learning.
