With approximately 200 students in grades K-12, St. Patrick School is a private Catholic school in Maysville, KY. W+CO designed a new wing that will become a Media Center and Library for the high school grades. The three-story expansion will offer a spacious library with learning labs and classrooms, computers and digital technology tools offered in a variety of flexible spaces. Because the school and church are located in downtown Maysville, the addition had to be strategically sited to make the most of limited available space. The School is surrounded by the St. Patrick Church, private houses and other churches. The design of the new wing creates a small courtyard between the existing building and the new wing with a curved inner side faced with window walls that usher light into the interior. The new Media Center was designed to be a contemporary, state-of-the-art learning center but to also coordinate with historic neighboring houses, churches and stores.
