In honor of ADG Architecture, llc celebrating its thirtieth anniversary, we are taking a look back at some of our favorite projects!
With students heading back into the classroom next week, we are taking a look back at Lexington Middle School! Opening its doors in 2006, Lexington Middle School was constructed in the South Zone of the Lee County School District to help with the growing population. This 1,200 student station middle school was the prototype for many of the middle schools built afterwards and shares a site with the Wa-Ke-Hatchee Center, a Lee County Parks and Recreation facility.
Lexington Middle School is a three-story classroom building that contains grades 6-8. As of the 2019 school year, this “A” school has around 1,200 students enrolled and offers a variety of programs such as the International Baccalaureate program. The second building houses the music and arts classrooms and labs and two gymnasiums. The second gymnasium is used in conjunction with Wa-Ke-Hatchee park and can be combined with the first gymnasium to allow a larger athletic space. Lexington Middle and Wa-Ke-Hatchee share a play field, track, and basketball courts to allow both the school district and the Lee County Parks and Rec to save money during the design and construction process. Together, these two buildings are over 197,000 square feet!
#BlastfromthePast Fun Fact: ADG created a 3D model to show off the design concept for Lexington Middle School! Check it out in the photos above!
