Burgess & Niple designed the new $55 million, K-12 campus for Hubbard Exempted Village School District in Hubbard, Ohio. Three schools, an elementary school, middle school and high school are designed as one contiguous building to achieve efficiencies through the sharing of dining, assembly, music and media spaces.
The design of the elementary school had to consider separation of the younger children from middle and high school students. Because it is possible to move directly from any one of the schools to any other, B&N designed control features to allow faculty and staff to move freely through all schools, while restricting middle and high school access to the elementary school. This was accomplished by the careful arrangement of corridors and staff spaces that are not accessible to students and the management of level changes within the structure.
The existing Hubbard High School auditorium has been renovated and incorporated into the new complex. The expanded campus retains the present
athletic facilities including baseball, softball and soccer fields, and the running
track, with the addition of practice fields and areas for track and field events.
The forested south end of the campus features nature trails and areas dedicated
to environmental education
