Rock Hill Schools
Rock Hill, South Carolina
The project consolidates the district’s language immersion programs onto a single campus. The new school unifies the district’s language instruction and creates a pipeline allowing students to continue in-depth language study. The kindergarten through first grade, second and third grade, and fourth and fifth grade halls all have their own “Casa Maison,” comprised of expanded circulation space that occupies multiple teaching stations for break out and collaborative learning. The Casa Maisons are located on each level of the new construction and in the existing building in the renovated area adjacent to the media center. The interior design concept features wayfinding around the collaborative areas reinforcing the space and designating the path of travel. The school earned LEED Silver certification in 2019.
