Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart’s first phase of recent expansions was completed this past August in the form of an exterior building shell and core, designed by Studio RED Architects. The exterior design has become the new “front door” to the school, establishing a new architectural style for the campus to continue through future phases.
Studio RED‘s design for the Houston Catholic girls’ school is a new science and academic building with middle school and upper school libraries. The 22,000 sf facility has been designed to accommodate an enrollment of 800 students. The design will meet the needs of the high school program with five new science laboratory classrooms and five academic classrooms. Along with the classrooms and two libraries, a full-service kitchen is also part of the design, allowing the replacement of the existing inadequate facility. The remaining phases of renovation are set to begin in the summer of 2012, while school is not in session.
