LCSD 1 Meadow Glen Middle School, Columbia, SC
This progressive School District desired a secure, efficient and exciting learning environment for 1,000 middle school students. The curriculum required maximum collaboration between students, faculty and administration. Hussey Gay Bell responded by designing a “Main Street” concept providing efficient circulation between all major educational areas. Additionally, the selected site had a challenging topography which was addressed with an extensive segmented retaining wall system. The siting of the building took advantage of the topography to create magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
