Awarded: Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI), 2014 Excellence in Design Citation Award
McMillan Pazdan Smith helped Meeting Street Academy, a private school located in Spartanburg, SC, expand their vision to provide under-resourced families with a life changing educational opportunity. The school currently serves 36 students in PK3 – PK4 and plans to phase in new classes each year.
The $1.3 million, 15,400 SF school consists of a library, media center/computer lab, multi-purpose room, music and art suites, state of the art classrooms and a playground. The bright and playful interiors engage and stimulate young minds as they travel the hallways. Pictorial wall graphics help convey the mission of the school, while integrated floor patterns and luminous ceilings serve to captivate and spark the imaginations of students and visitors.
The renovated building has helped revitalize an under utilized shopping center, the Broadwalk Building, in the heart of Spartanburg.
“This project feels like a great case study for future charter schools to use for renovating an existing space.”
