The design of the new Lake Fenton High School is predicated upon creating
environments that respond to the diverse and often competing activities of a
high school. Site elements such as landscaped berms, ecological ponds, and wild
flower areas have been carefully placed to soften the residential streetscapes.
The building itself outstretches its arms to embrace the serenity of the streetscape,
as well as to conceal the active side of the site. Hidden behind the classroom
wings are bus drives, parking lots, and student congregating areas with athletic
fields, tennis courts and practice areas situated beyond.
Just as the site has been arranged to separate the serene from the active area, the
school’s floor plan has been designed to separate passive study from active learning.
In the center, a two-story high entrance hall with twin stairways transforms itself
into the student commons, separating the gym, music and auditorium functions
on the active side from the learning facilities on the quiet side.
