Soulsville Charter School

An expansion of the Soulsville Charter School program, this new academic building reinforces their mission to positively impact the surrounding urban neighborhood through intensive musical training and rigorous academics. The campus palette of multi-colored brick and metal panels is reflected in the exterior, while the interior takes cues from the adjacent STAX Museum, using playful colors, patterns, and materials. Due to a limited budget, the building was designed with collaborative common areas, including the main entry lobby, reception, and corridors.
