From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: Lansing School District, Everett High School Renovation

April 15, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Renovation/Modernization category.

The first phase of improvements at Everett High School in Lansing, Michigan, replaced the windows throughout the building’s three-story educational wing. In the second phase, an extensive remodel of the visual and performing arts center, stage, lobby, piano lab, and cafeteria met all-new band, dance, scene shop, and art rooms throughout the interior. Former art rooms were adapted into new video production space. Material selections use shapes, volumes, and patterns to evoke creativity and inspire movement without sacrificing durability. Outside, a new courtyard leads into the performing arts center through a secure entry vestibule.
