Colorado Academy Upper School

Project Overview

Ground-Up New Facility

Colorado Academy exists as a coeducational Denver private school for PK-12. The CA Upper School space needed upgrading to serve grades 9-12 in a modern, 21st century style. Fransen Pittman rebuilt classrooms to feature environments that foster critical thinking and creativity. Incorporated into the design were considerations like the location of science, math, and innovation labs. These spaces were constructed on the south side to receive more direct, natural lighting to stimulate active learning. Literature, history and languages were built to receive cooler lighting and feature ample window space for views of the quadrangle. The cooler lighting and scenic views nurtures thought for subjects that require a more creative process. Redesigned student break out spaces were created to inspire group learning and interaction. The CA Upper School building now provides a setting to better serve student learning and growth.

This project was built with numerous sustainable elements that created 36% energy savings over a traditionally built facility.
