Kennedy Curry Middle School

Owner: Dallas Independent School District
Size: 123,635 Square Feet

Constructed in 1967-69, the Kennedy-Curry campus consisted of four free-standing, structurally sound, but dilapidated buildings – the cafeteria/classroom building, gym, and two classroom buildings. We developed a school environment that was safe, easily monitored, and would enhance the instructional delivery methods of the school district. By filling in the open spaces between the buildings, we developed one contiguous building instead of four; thereby eliminating the need for students to exit the building for any reason, and enabling a lock-down in emergency events. By creating a longitudinal “Main Street,” we connected the academic wings and support spaces with a main route of circulation, enhancing supervision and ease of travel. In so doing, we re-oriented the main entrance of the building to free up the availability of space for vehicular circulation and allow student drop-off by parents totally separated from bus traffic.
