Mueller Park Junior High School is a complete school transformation that provides comfortable, inviting, and modern spaces that provide support to its students, teachers, and staff. Key design features include a new student commons, administrative offices, and collaborative break-out spaces that provide opportunities for student interaction and enhance the overall educational experience. Lighting and mechanical systems were replaced to create a more efficient and comfortable environment, while energy efficient wall assemblies and window systems improve the thermal envelope. Skylights bring added natural lighting to the media center and custom wall graphics adorn the front entry and commons space. The result is an extended life of the existing structure while creating a successful learning environment now and into the future.
