LCDG is proud to include the Polytechnic School among its educational clients. Our current work with Poly includes a variety of projects, including design consultation on the renovation of the Garland Theater, and investigation into sunshade structures for the Lower School library. The main project for the Polytechnic School in Pasadena was a multi-phased project that involved campus-wide master planning, design, and construction for an iconic campus originally designed by Myron Hunt and Gordan Kauffman. The project included a new below-grade parking garage, the relocation of historic structures, the renovation of existing buildings, new construction, and associated sitework for the reconfigured campus.
New construction for the lower School included a new Administration Building, Library, Food Commons, Classrooms, Science Labs, and Kindergarten Spaces. For the Upper School, new spaces included a Library, Math and Science Labs. The design is intended to be a contemporary addition to the existing campus buildings, and utilized the familiar scale and materials of these structures to create a cohesive unified campus. The campus and buildings achieved LEED Gold Certification. *by Kevin O’Brien as Design Principal for HMC Architects
