Kentucky Country Day STEAM Academy Addition & Lower School RenovationLouisville, Kentucky
Kentucky Country Day’s New Steam Academy
Kentucky Country Day School will build two additions to the main building on its 74.5-acre campus in the East End as part of a three-phase renovation and expansion plan.
The additions to the 41-year-old building there will include a STEAM academic center and new administrative offices. The first phase also calls for a renovation of the KCD Lower School.
The goal of this project is to create large, flexible spaces for 21st-century teaching and learning. The new three-story STEAM (STEM + Art & Design) academic center addition includes a classroom alongside a large, flexible common area space for collaborative learning and student life. Located east of the facility’s current main entrance, the STEAM Academic Center will be a new primary entrance and focal point of the campus, showcasing student work.
The renovation of the Lower School will add a new entrance and welcoming area and change classrooms into large, flexible learning spaces.
Phase two will see a renovation and expansion of KCD’s athletic facilities. Phase three calls for a renovation of the KCD Middle School.
