Atlanta International School (AIS)
Atlanta International School Campus Master Plan
Lord Aeck Sargent prepared an overall campus master plan that set the stage for a series of campus enhancements including a primary school addition, a learning quad, a competition track and outdoor children’s amenity areas.
LAS was tasked with creating a series of collaborative, flexible spaces – both interior and exterior – which are intended to serve dual purposes in order to provide a wide variety of opportunities for small and large group learning along with recreation.
LAS was challenged with tight boundaries and a responsive design required efficient use of all the available space, which included providing a new outdoor courtyard that successfully ties the existing primary school buildings in with the new construction. The courtyard was strategically designed to be a space that flowed seamlessly from the indoor learning areas. A long, continuous patio, the layout of hardscape and trees and geometric organization all bridged the inside space with the outside, creating opportunities for individual and group learning.
