GVSA Helps Amana Academy Launch West Atlanta Campus

Goode Van Slyke Architecture is helping Amana Academy, an Atlanta-area charter school, launch its newest campus – Amana Academy West Atlanta. Amana announced plans for the new school, to be built at the Girl Scouts’ Camp Timber Ridge, earlier this year.


GVSA’s work for the West Atlanta campus started three years ago when it began helping Amana investigate possible locations. This included evaluating existing buildings as well as undeveloped land. Once Camp Timber Ridge was chosen, the firm worked to mesh Amana’s long-term strategy with that of the Girl Scouts’ 270-acre site. It is also working to locate structures for immediate move-in this fall while accommodating expected growth.

The Arts Center at Spelman College

A media outlet for the arts in Atlanta covered the design for the new Center for Innovation and the Arts at Spelman College. Goode Van Slyke is the associate architect on the project with lead architect Studio Gang. ARTSATL describes how a gift from LaTanya Richard Jackson, her husband Samuel L. Jackson, and other philanthropists allowed for new construction and renovation on the campus of the historically black liberal arts college for women.


Empty Stocking Fund Renovation Complete Thanks to Atlanta Businesses

Just in time for Christmas, the Empty Stocking Fund has a newly-renovated headquarters thanks to almost two dozen local businesses that donated their time and services. Brasfield & Gorrie worked pro bono as the general contractor for the overall project. Goode Van Slyke Architecture donated free design services for a new office and other aspects of the project. The team also volunteered at the nonprofit on Dec. 6, 2021, helping families find toys to brighten the holidays.
