McCallie School
McDonald Hall

This independent boy’s school in Chattanooga, Tennessee, wanted to add a middle school to its challenging, college preparatory high school program. It was critical that the design of the new school not only accommodate the team concept of middle school learning, but also reflect the independent school’s desire to provide students with informal gathering spaces and outdoor recreation areas. The new school is organized along a diagonal atrium spine. At the heart of the school, opening off the spine, are a library/resource center and a “forum”–a flexible gathering space where students can meet for lectures, performances, or study groups.
