Developing A Campus Master Plan

Faced with growing challenges pertaining to circulation and architectural identity, SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson worked with School District Five of Lexington / Richland Counties to develop a campus master plan for Irmo High School that would artfully address concerns regarding contrasting architectural styles, school identity, and on-site circulation.

Addressing On-Site Circulation

By revamping on-site circulation and creating a clear delineation between vehicular and pedestrian traffic, our design team proposed an increase in on-site vehicle stacking in order to alleviate traffic backing up onto St. Andrews Road, the main thoroughfare onto campus.

Visually & Physically Reconnecting The Campus

By incorporating a number of new plazas and canopies in front of the existing academic buildings, C.A.T.E. facilities and proposed new auditorium, the design team was able to visually and physically re-connect the campus.
