The Alfred & Adele Davis Academy Lower School

1999

Having received a generous donation for the creation of a Reform Jewish Day School, community leaders asked the firm to work with them in creating a facility capable of fulfilling their needs. After looking at various sites and receiving a Fulton County Special Use Permit for the property, the design process began in earnest to create a multi-phased project with a final build-out of 96,000 sq ft capable of accommodating 700 students from kindergarten through middle school. As a result of various site constraints generated by surrounding homes, the Master Plan seeks to maximize exterior recreation areas and minimize the building footprint while including a road and parking network capable of queuing 140 cars on-site from drop-off thru pick-up and parking for 200 cars. The facility provides for a diverse program with classrooms, administration areas, media center, specialty labs, gymnasium, cafeteria, auditorium and kosher kitchen. Since the facility’s ultimate completion and owing to the school’s rapid growth, the middle school has since moved into its own facility on a nearby parcel.
