The proposed addition and renovation for Dallas ISD’s Seagoville High School includes additional core academic learning spaces as well as redesigned and expanded administration offices improving access control and spaces for the counselors, teachers, and parents further unifying the school with the surrounding community. Expansion and renovation of the campus’ dining facilities is also a planned feature increasing student seating capacity with minimal interior disruptions. Additional design features within the consolidated cafeteria include better acoustical isolation and student access while eliminating distractions caused by an open corridor.
The new classroom wing provides flexible break-out space outside the traditional classrooms for students to collaborate, display art projects and make class presentations. The architectural design includes a redefined main entry providing a modern identity for the campus as well as a clear path for visitors. The new main entry also features a new 2-story interior student atrium celebrating school pride and spirit with the school name and large graphics depicting the school’s mascot. A new outdoor learning terrace located above central administration is designed capture indirect north daylight while providing shade from eastern and western exposures facilitating a comfortable outdoor environment for student-led outdoor learning opportunities.
