Duke School For Children

The Duke School sought to consolidate two separate facilities into one new state-of-the-art campus on the edge of the Duke Forest, which involved carefully building on the side of a rural slope. Phase I comprised three sky-lit, open floor plan, energy efficient classroom buildings and a large gymnasium for the Middle School in the rear of the new campus. Phase II added two large buildings with mirrored floor plans for pre-school and elementary aged children. Three existing buildings were renovated in this phase to complete construction of the Lower School. CT Wilson worked with project team and the Duke School students, faculty, and administration in a hands-on building process that led to a new, unified campus that looks at home between the adjacent farm and forest.
