Correcting past sins is one of the things studioTECHNE is frequently hired to do. In the case of Heights High, a series of additions has rendered the building unusable. Entry for students, parents and the community is past the trash dumpster, and continues through a series of confusing corridors. Classrooms and hallways are small, and there is no space for the Small Schools Program to develop and grow. studioTECHNE is working with the Alumni Foundation, School Board and KnowledgeWorks to reclaim the past glory of the school. Removal of the 1960’s science wing addition will provide a courtyard and restore the Cedar Road presence of the school. In conjunction with this, a new school entry on the north side of the building designed in harmony with the existing facility will provide an obvious place of entry to the building. Community access and use of the facility is improved with the public being invited to use the new auditorium, state of the art wireless resource center, and aquatic center. Designing the facility in harmony with the existing building does not preclude the introduction of state of the art technology and sustainable design principles. The Students, Teachers, and learning environment benefit from abundant daylight, operable windows and improved indoor air quality. Additionally, providing sufficient space for programs means the students will have generous spaces for hallways and places to meet and interact.
