Gettysburg Area Middle School

Gettysburg Area School District
Open Gallery

The 1,100 student facility is designed with a “main street” which separates the academic areas from the  large program spaces, such as the gymnasium, auditorium, cafeteria and media center. The entry vestibule design provides security card access control and requires all visitors to enter the building through the supervised administration area.  The classroom wing is designed in a system to achieve appropriate separation between grade levels. The building angle design responds to the views of the Gettysburg battlefields and additionally maintain classrooms on an east-west axis to utilize northern and southern day light into the educational spaces.  On the interior the overlapping grid creates a visually stimulating sequence of interior and exterior views throughout the building.
