C&M has worked in SIES over 20 years, from Hurricane Hugo repairs to renovations and adding a new elevated media center to designing a replacement new school.
The new school is a partial magnet kindergarten through fifth grade 500 student capacity building located on the original oceanfront parcel behind two historic gun emplacements.
Numerous site factors have resulted in an elevated structure of four linked segments sensitively scaled to respect the adjacent residences. The segments serve to collect grade levels and connect them to the large core spaces (multipurpose and dining) and administrative support functions. A vertical entry design element signals the focal point of the articulated design which includes extensive decks, covered porches and roof features sympathetic to the existing character of the barrier island locale.
