Villa Duchesne & Oak Hill School
St. Louis, MO
Year Completed: Ongoing
Size: 6,500 SQ FT
Project Budget: $5.5 M
Founded in 1929, Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill Schools have been providing high quality education through both their all-girls program for grades 7-12, and their co-ed program for grades 3-6. Having had only minimal upgrades since the original construction, their existing auditorium and support spaces have made it a challenge to continue to provide high quality education to all students.
Fox Architects was selected to provide design options to resolve the multiple elevation changes, making the entire space universally accessible to all. In addition to the accessibility, Fox was tasked with the addition of a Main Entry gathering space. This project is currently being approved by the school board and construction is set to begin in the Spring of 2021. When completed, the new facilities will be among the best in the region.
