From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: Crandall Middle School

Feb. 16, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Middle Schools category.

Crandall Middle School in Crandall, Texas, is a unique facility for Crandall ISD. Flexibility and adaptability were major design themes. The facility features a double-sided stage flanked by a cafeteria and gymnasium. The gymnasium is designed to double as an auditorium and will seat 1,900 occupants. Flexible labs are centered in the academic wing. The library shelving is distributed throughout the academic wing, and the circulation desk guards entry at the two-story student commons.
