About This Project

ABC Greater Tennessee 2020 Excellence in Construction Eagle Award and 2020 ULI Nashville Runner Up.

 

The new, 85,858-square-foot K-8 Explore! Community Charter School features 36 classrooms, art, science and music rooms, small group rooms, a dining room, library and office space, plus ample makerspace.  The exterior is comprised of insulated metal wall panels in school colors that create a unique civic architecture and provide a high thermal envelope (R-value) for heating and cooling efficiency. In a nod to the adjacent Martha O’Bryan Center, brick veneer complements the vibrant panels.
