Southwest DeKalb High School
Designers for CDH Partners created a plan that included the renovation of this major high school located in the metro Atlanta area. It also called for the construction of a 67,000 square foot instructional addition that included a 640-seat auditorium, state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and offices.
The two-story facility was designed to create an iconic presence on the campus and within the community. Window walls at the entrance to the structure provide an abundance of natural light and passive solar gain.
This important addition presents a contemporary and dominant façade to the street. Its modern style includes tall folding doors at the rear of the building, which open to an outdoor grass terraced amphitheater. These large connecting doors allows indoor and outdoor activities to interact.
