As the first LEED certified building in Detroit, this high school combines education and business, art and technology, school and community, creating an optimal place for learning.

Designed in collaboration with another local firm, this six-story, 1,200-student public school is helping to renew the spirit of its school district and has become an important center in the community. Envisioned as a highly specialized educational, training and production facility, this high school houses a black box theater, an 800-seat auditorium, recital hall, large classrooms, and various television and radio production studios. Natural lighting and wood finishes are blended with metal wall panels, terrazzo, and soft acoustic treatments throughout the building. The result is a creative, clean design that is durable and attractive. The building also includes a green roof with sun shades and four heat wheels to reflect solar heat gain, and hydraulic elevators that operate off of vegetable oil. Elements such as these contributed to the Detroit School of Arts receiving LEED certification.
