Nolan Catholic High School

Having recently completed a two-year campus-wide renovation, Nolan Catholic High School now provides its students with state-of-the-art experiential learning opportunities in the arts and sciences via the Integrated Design, Engineering and Arts (IDEA) building. The IDEA building was constructed to provide a collaborative space for the robotics, art, digital media, and broadcast production programs, while also functioning as a campus hub.

 

Important to the school’s overarching vision for the campus, Corgan and Linbeck worked with natural materials to create a building with a deep overhang and large facade with views towards the lake, as well as an upward interior procession to the art gallery and primary gathering spaces. Transparency and flexibility permeate the design through the exposed steel structural frame, the wood roof deck, and building systems that allow for the community to see student innovation in action. The building curves with the topography outside and is meant to maximize daylight, provide natural light in the workspaces, and show respect for the school’s existing chapel.

 

KSC worked with 8,200 SF of ACM for the metal cladding that resulted in providing a learning space for students as well as standing out as an architectural enhancement to the prestigious campus.
