Healdsburg High School was in need of modernized learning spaces for Career Technical Education (CTE) for the arts and STEM programs. As part of a multi-phase project, QKA first modernized and transformed two existing classroom wings. The first wing was converted to serve as a new Culinary Arts Center equipped with a commercial kitchen and interior and exterior dining instructional spaces. Adjacent to the kitchen, outdoor gardens, orchards and livestock are used for the school’s on-site Farm-to-Table studies. The second modernization upgrade included a fine and applied arts wing featuring two art classrooms and a digital arts lab with a large green room for video recording, a sound room, and two recording rooms.
In addition to this modernization work, phase 1 also included a brand new 9,616 square foot STEM building with three science labs, prep rooms, and an engineering and construction lab with a covered outdoor work space.
With the completion of these CTE spaces, phase 2 included the demolition of several now unneeded small teaching spaces to make room for the development of a new campus entry plaza for student gathering, a new entrance hallway with floor-to-ceiling windows, a conference room and staff meeting room, as well as outdoor learning spaces that adjoin to interior study areas. Lastly, much needed IT and exterior finishing improvements were completed campus-wide.
