On a recent trip to Bulgaria, Diantha Korzun was able to check in on the construction of one of our current higher-ed projects, the Anglo American School of Sofia. TruexCullins has been working with the school to develop a master plan, growing the school from 350 to 650 students.
The school serves middle school and high school students and the new facilities include classrooms, sports facilities and a performing arts complex, including a new outdoor amphitheater. The design allows each section to be built independently, fosters the creation of smaller learning communities within a larger school, and minimizes disruption to ongoing operations.
When working on international projects, we take special care to listen to our clients and design spaces that are appropriate to each locale and culture. On this project, we have had a wonderful working relationship with the local architecture firm Ivo Petrov Architects. TruexCullins has been providing Design Guardianship with Ivo Petrov Architects acting as the local architect of record.
The facilities are nearing completion and will officially open for the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
