Episcopal School of Los Angeles Middle School Campus
Los Angeles, CA
ESLA is an existing vibrant private school located in the heart of Hollywood, California. We set out as partners to Masterplan a New Middle School with an existing Lower School campus. The result is a fabulous urban campus through re-use of a series of existing buildings from the 1930s. The project not only tackles new learning and connected social spaces but also a new street presence. The project occurred through a series of phases to address structural upgrades, infrastructural improvements, new exterior elevator, and a new commercial kitchen.
The project took shape through a phased construction approach – addressing structural upgrades, infrastructural improvements, a new exterior elevator, and a new commercial kitchen – maintaining a vision of modernized classrooms and flexible outdoor space. Collectively, the revitalize buildings frame and overlook a multi-functional outdoor space that serves activities ranging from sporting events and student drop-off to art shows and graduation ceremonies.
