Kennebunk High School

750-Student School, Addition and Renovations

Kennebunk, Maine

The current concept renovates the historic 1939 school building as well as the 1980 addition and adds 121,000 sq. ft. of additional high performance learning space. The plan includes renovation of the existing competition gymnasium, new support spaces and a 25 yard seven lane competition swimming pool with balcony seating and locker room facilities. The project incorporates state of the art infrastructure, new science labs, STEM and technology labs, a new second gym, cafeteria, administrative offices, and library/learning commons. The two story classroom wing wraps around a courtyard providing a clear circulation loop. The school incorporates many sustainable design features such as radiant slabs, daylight harvesting, solar thermal and vertical displacement diffusers. The plan provides a high level of security and flexibility for after-hours community use of the facility.

This new complex has a full complement of competition quality playfields featuring an 8-lane broken back track with grandstands and a turf infield. The fields are linked with a network of metered cross country trails. Parking is conveniently clustered amongst the various fields and adjacent to the high school.
