Lanier High School Renovation

San Antonio, Texas

This is an extensive renovation of SAISD's existing Lanier classroom building and adjacent athletics fields. The design was directly shaped by stakeholder feedback, where it was indicated that the lack of natural daylight, poor security and outdated technology hampered educational curriculums, morale and safety. The solution reimagines the existing building by carving a central entry nave, removing the top 8' of brick and installing new clerestories at the perimeter and building core to introduce daylight to all learning spaces. Future-ready spaces, new security systems, and total replacement of all MEP and technology and interior finishes in the building breathe new life into the community.

The project is in the culturally rich westside of San Antonio. As such, extensive stakeholder involvement occurred to bring the community along in the design. At the core of this, is intense coordination with a series of muralists, where the design team envisioned the digital recreation or murals, locations for new murals, and a digital "mural museum" to tie the community to its past.
