Amana Academy has a new bioswale! Bioswales are a fantastic addition to any campus, as they not only assist with stormwater management but also provide educational and recreational opportunities. GVSA has been a long-time partner with Amana Academy, we are excited about the new addition to their campus. Amana Academy and GVSA’s commitment to sustainability and creating a greener environment is commendable. The outdoor classroom environment is a great way to engage students with nature and promote experiential learning. Here’s to a successful and eco-friendly school year for the students at Amana Academy, as they enjoy their new outdoor space!
Charter schools leveraging the experience and knowledge of leading educators, have the best current methodology in education. The new PEACE academy charter school is the only charter-approved public school in the entire state of Georgia with an Afrocentric and culturally inclusive curriculum. GVSA, in association with Carroll Daniel was charged with bringing their vision of an inclusive and diverse community exposed to new critical thinking experiences to built life. The first step in that vision is through environmental impact.
Finding its home in a shopping center along a prominent throughway in Decatur, the school’s location places it firmly in the community. To bring that same experience of “community” into the learning space, there are two “forum” spaces which encourage and foster community and social learning critical in today’s digital life culture. Other impactful spaces within the school are large classrooms with integrated technological teaching tools for flexible teaching styles.
Currently educating kindergarten through third grade, the interior is accented with bright colors on walls and floors, and bright lighting. Enhancing the safety of the students, there are no exterior windows except in the lobby to bring in natural light. Each classroom has viewing windows facing the well-lit corridors and forum spaces. As the educational grades grow to include all middle school aged students, the interior environment will grow and change. #gvsa #goodevanslyke #goodevanslykearchitecture #carrolldaniels #peaceacademy #charterschools
GVSA attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new administration building at Fulton County Executive Airport (FTY). Fulton County Executive Airport, also known as Brown Field, is an important general aviation facility in the metro Atlanta area. It serves many corporate clients and is the third-busiest airport in the region. The addition of a new administration building is likely to enhance the airport’s services and facilities for both businesses and travelers.
James Cain and Jason Wright represented GVSA at the Spelman College Center for Innovation and the Arts topping out ceremony.
GVSA is honored to support Theatrical Outfit with architectural and interior design services for the lobby and patron spaces renovation outlined in their “The Heart of the City Campaign.” We worked closely with the client, general contractor, engineers, and the City of Atlanta to provide a design that will promote Theatrical Outfit’s vision and enhance the cityscape.
