Accordingly, the new building is designed to foster its strong culture, provide state-of-the-art labs and instructional spaces, and create an environment that will help students transition to the next step in their life of inspired learning. The central Learning Commons sets the tone: a dynamic and collaborative evolution of the library, it functions as the literal and figurative heart of the school. Every level of this vertical, four-story campus engages this inspiring space, providing formal and informal places to gather, socialize, and collaborate. As it stacks through the central atrium, it integrates all of the program spaces on every level by providing centrally located, open, and collaborative spaces for study, socialization, and collaboration. This design allows it to become a beacon of natural light into an otherwise deep building footprint. Skylights suffuse each level with natural light and generous interior glazing in adjacent instructional spaces allows natural light to supplement daylight from exterior windows, enhancing the learning environment.
