Whitfield School – New Gymnasium, Performing Arts Center, Gallery & Commons Area

Phase III of M+H designed projects at Whitfield School included a new performing arts center, gymnasium, gallery and commons area and completes the campus with an elegant appearance along Ladue Road to the north. The Schmitter Gallery is a large gathering space connecting the entrances to the new Woods Performing Arts Center and the Cady Athletic Center.

Construction included a multifaceted process of renovation, construction and relocation of building functions. The existing athletic facility was expanded to create performance and practice gyms, power-lifting and fitness spaces and new locker and concession facilities. The existing media center was converted to classrooms, and then the Intellectual Commons and Piper Courtyard were created to provide a media center that includes wireless computer technology, a cyber-cafe and a mezzanine. These projects have set the standards for educational space and have elevated the quality of education at Whitfield School.

M+H has also worked with Whitfield on site signage and baseball field upgrades.
