Central Middle School

Central Middle School

Tinley Park, Illinois

This school emphasizes strong, horizontal lines through a single story massing, while two unique forms define the media center and multi-purpose components. The building was located to maximize green space for outdoor activities, as well as minimize conflict between bus and vehicular traffic. Classrooms are organized into clusters based upon team teaching. Interior courtyards allow ample natural daylight to enter the corridors, creating the illusion of additional space.
