Lowe Elementary School

Humanities Center
Lowe Elementary School
Louisville, Kentucky
As part of an overall renovation, the Lowe Elementary Library was in need of an update. It sat in an open area in the center of the school and was not open to the community. We have proposed a new media center/library addition included in a Humanities Suite at the center of the school. Art and music studios will integrate with the media center and encourage collaboration between them. The new media center moves to the front of the school and welcomes the community.
Sustainable Design Elements: Facility HVAC system was entirely upgraded along with LED lighting. New additions were heavily insulated with a spray insulation / air barrier system.
