TRUMAN MIDDLE SCHOOL / PHASE 2A

The existing Truman Middle School is a 126,000 sf campus comprised of the original school built in the 1973 with additional buildings added over the years. The most recent building was a classroom building, built in 2010. The site slopes from west down to the east on Albuquerque's west mesa. It is surrounded by residential neighborhoods with views of the Sandia Mountains.                                     
The program for this phase of work called for new Administration Offices, Counselling Offices, Library, Cafeteria, Performing Arts and Computer Classrooms. Our design concept was to create a secured central courtyard oriented east-west, around which the entire school will be organized. The new Administration is centrally located with a connecting bridge to the existing classroom building to the west. The Administration Building creates a strong street prescence along the north side with the main entrance passing under the bridge. The second floor of the Administration Building houses computer classrooms and the library on the east end. Connection is made to the Cafeteria / Performing Arts Building by a second story bridge that accommodates the fine arts program.
