Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School

Pace Academy

Academic / Institutional Atlanta, GA  |  76,000 sf

When Pace Academy outgrew its Upper School, CCCA and Pace teamed together to design a new school that would double their space within the confines of the existing footprint.

Marking the completion of the Pace Academy campus master plan, the new Upper School sits at the front of campus, complementing the style and scale of Pace’s iconic administrative building, “the castle.” The light-filled, four-story building includes 40 classrooms, a three-story library, science and computer labs, academic resource center, college counseling facility and a roof terrace. The two-story student commons is an energetic social hub for students and teachers to congregate and collaborate.

Noteworthy: Particular design attention was paid to shared spaces that promote daily encounters between students and teachers, all within a warm and inviting residential aesthetic.
