North Atlanta High School is an important community touchstone located on a busy, prominent Atlanta street. It required a design that would transform the building’s lackluster street façade and inconspicuous main entry into welcoming beacons of learning worthy of the school’s distinction and location.
The new, 3-story, light-filled, glass and brick-clad main entry lobby accomplishes this goal. It also signals the substantial changes that have occurred in other parts of the building.
