Regents School of Austin

Austin, Texas 

Fusing classically-influenced design and a Texas Hill Country aesthetic, the first two permanent structures (the gymnasium and grammar school building) at this private classical school anchor the campus and provide a appealing home for the school’s students, grades K-12, nestled in the heavily wooded site in West Austin. 

The site is divided into an upper and lower campus, both with strong connections to nature. Because a purely classical arrangement was limited by site constraints, a more organic plan emerged with special emphasis on the spaces between the buildings to be used by students outside of class. 

Soon after completing the Gymnasium at Regents, we were asked to design the first permanent classroom building on the campus using many of the same building materials and design elements developed in the Gym project. The two-story building features eighteen classrooms, a foyer commons, several specialty classrooms for music, art, physics, chemistry, and a large central library.
