AHAHS PARTITION INSTALLATION

Atrisco Heritage Academy High School on the westside of Albuquerque has experienced rapid growth since opening in 2008. In order to expand the existing locker rooms, the weight room and dance/ cheer needed to be relocated into a temporary fabric structure. The fabric structure required a partition and offices to separate the two programs.

EFA’s approach was to re-imagine the idea of partition and create a free standing structure built with re-usable materials. The structural A-frame form, built with construction grade plywood, provides a sight and acoustic barrier between the two areas and juxtaposes the fabric bubble with a sculptural form.

Offices, changing rooms & mirrors are integrated into the partition, creating a functional, compact core.

Materials include conventional wood framing with 4x8 sheets of plywood, glass mirrors, drywall and aluminum storefront.
