Alief Hastings High School

The additions to Alief-Hastings High School were designed to consolidate the administration area near the entrance to the school and provide an “identifiable” front door while also acting as a security portal to the entrance of this sprawling campus. A unification of the north and south houses was achieved with the addition of a curved colonnade which also acted as the new facade for the band hall addition. The introduction of a glass topped entry tower created a new identity for the campus.

The relocation of the administration area provides additional safety benefits by allowing the main office to visually control the student and bus drop-off and the visitor entrance.
