The Environmental Science Building for Lakehill Prep School provides new classrooms for the study of field biology and botany. As the first academic building on a satellite campus, the new building is configured to take advantage of a sloping wooded site and the adjacent creek, while minimizing disturbance to existing topography and vegetation. The facility includes three laboratory classrooms and a great hall/library, as well as support facilities. A cantilevered covered porch will provide a treetop-level observation platform, and a new plaza, constructed of local limestone, will provide a place for social functions for the school community. The building is seeking LEED Silver certification.
