HIGH SCHOOL CAMPUS, LIBRARY



Located along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Alverno High School is home to the historic Villa de Sol D’Oro, and over 20 Coast Live Oaks. Through the creation of a master plan, the project goals were to develop and improve the campus with its existing historical fabric; provide an enclosed gathering space; and design facilities that advance educational opportunities.

These educational opportunity advancements begin with a complete modernization of the existing library into a technology learning center.  The project consisted of an adaptive re-use of the 1960’s traditional library lacking in technology, natural lighting, and generally up-to-date finishes.  A complete systems, space, and furniture renovation now provides the campus with; flexible classroom spaces; vibrant study and social spaces; and a key space for large gatherings and student recruitment.  The reimagined center is a now the true heart of the campus.
