MARIEMONT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

The SFA design team expanded the existing elementary school building to combine two smaller neighborhood elementary schools. Renovation of the existing building was difficult due to existing structure and low ceiling heights in the existing basement. The team renovated the existing auditorium and lobby, saving all of the historic features, while bringing the building up to code and adding air conditioning. The project team worked around saving the existing gym while adding critical circulation to the new main entrance for security and drop off. The plan utilized hollow core slabs to bring down the floor to floor height and allow the new addition to meet the old building with ramps. This retrofit allows the addition to look seamless on the outside. Within the building an atrium was created to allow natural light into the corridors and provide visibility to the main entrance. A two=story community/cafeteria was designed to allow for dual purpose use for the community, while also saving the old exterior walls and historic features. As a final touch, the team restored the historic Mariemont cupola, an icon within the neighborhood.
