The new Lakewood High School is a symbol of community, reflective of contemporary values, mindful of local heritage and its place in the geography.
Traversing the gentle surrounding hills, the distant experience around the high school site is one of horizontal motion. Simple building forms are articulated with planes of brick, metal siding and regular modules of fenestration.
The striated horizontal brick pattern wraps and unifies the building. It is a representation of our digital age, like beams of fiber optic light. From a distance or up close, the lines give a sense of movement that draws people into and through the building.
