Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep

Chicago, IL

As a member of the BLDD/Brook Joint Venture, Brook Architecture served as the AOR for a stand-alone 50,000 sf Athletic Center Addition (principally a Natatorium and Competition Gymnasium) and for the conversion of space within the existing school into science laboratory classrooms (from existing music lab space) and language laboratory space (from existing library space). Brook coordinated with consultants to achieve LEED Silver certification through the LEED for Schools program, while maintaining the building standards of the Chicago Public Schools.
