Michael R. Hollis Innovation Academy
Michael R. Hollis Innovation Academy approaches community engagement from a different perspective. While one can appreciate the brutalist style of architecture to the former John F. Kennedy Middle School, Hollis Innovation Academy requires something different. Adding curtainwall to the existing concrete structure brings natural light into the reconfigured spaces. Inside the school is an operations existing open healthcare clinic. Working around this space we have seen how making healthcare accessible to the community fosters a better learning environment. By engaging the community from all sides the Michael R. Hollis academy is changing lives and we are grateful to be a small part of that process.
