Memorial High School
Knudson, LP in collaboration with SHW Architects worked on the modernization of this 55-year old high school. The overall site concept was to convert an open campus to a closed, secure campus. The exterior building façade was completely reclad, the exterior courtyards were replanted with native Texas plant material, and the popular interior courtyards were redesigned to better serve the student population and provide an outdoor cafeteria for faculty and students to gather. The newly designed, modernized campus has surpassed expectations and has been embraced by the local community, while also preserving the existing native live oaks.
