Modern math building adds new-school style to an old-school campus.
Gilroy School District had multiple goals: expand space for STEM programming, modernize the 40-year-old campus and provide flexibility for evolving needs. AMS offered the ideal solution in a two-story math building that mixes traditional design with modern upgrades in two wings of adaptable learning/lab space. The building’s blended aesthetic incorporates custom architectural details that reflect the diversity of the historic campus. A mansard roof matches the rooflines of the school’s older buildings. Slanted wood stair canopies and concrete pillars echo the alpine style of the newer student center. Large windows and glass door surrounds overlook a quad, daylighting classrooms to save energy while connecting spaces for indoor/outdoor learning.
