GORZYCKI MIDDLE SCHOOL
The Gorzycki Middle School is both a landmark and a community center for the southwest Austin neighborhood and captures views of the surrounding rolling hills and the Austin skyline while blending with the natural environment of the site. The concept of creating a usable hub for the community organizations was important in designing shared areas that could be used for non-school related events. Each major corridor is identified with a unique color. To facilitate wayfinding, the library and commons space are located in the heart of the building, with corridors branching out toward classroom wings for grades sixth, seventh, eight and Special Education. The project achieved a 3-Star Rating from the Austin Energy Green Building program.
