University Preparatory Academy

St. Petersburg, FL

Complete renovation of an existing two story 1920s historic Middle School building. The project site formally known as Southside Junior High School was designated by the City of St. Petersburg as a local historic landmark in 1996. Prior to construction, the school building had been out of use and had been sitting empty for over 4 years. The goal of the project was to create a clean, fresh and safe place for children in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade to learn and prosper. The amount of usable classroom space within the building was maximized while uncovering and revealing the beauty of this Historic site.
