Karcher Middle School in Burlington Area School District Wins a GOLD ASID Wisconsin Design Excellence Award!
In 2014, the Burlington Area School District in Burlington, Wisconsin engaged PRA to complete a district-wide facility study and educational space analysis. This study revealed the aged middle school needed replacement to align with the district’s modern flexible approach to teaching and learning. Today, the new Karcher Middle School elevates teaching and learning in warm, collaborative, and modern environments that promote “The Karcher Way” and allows for flexibility and adaptability of spaces to meet future pedagogy.
Westside Elementary School in the School District of Mauston Wins a GOLD ASID Wisconsin Design Excellence Award!
The existing West Side Elementary school in the School District of Mauston, Wisconsin, had exceeded its capacity and practicality. As part of a large master plan, the district decided to build a new school and centralize the campus. Today, the new West Side Elementary School is a vibrant learning community that supports curriculum, expands student knowledge, and creates a sense of home while at school.
North Port Public Safety Building Wins a GOLD ASID Wisconsin Design Excellence Award!
Fostering a sense of community and civic pride in the thriving Florida West Villages, the City of North Port Safety Building anchors the gateway to Downtown Wellen Park. With an efficient layout, quality materials, and a sense of gravitas, the new North Port Public Safety Building honors history while looking forward, performing optimally for its first responders and department staff, and meeting the needs of the West Villages for many years to come.
Trinity Woods Wins a Bronze ASID Wisconsin Design Excellence Award!
Trinity Woods is where generations meet. This intergenerational housing community on the campus of Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, WI, is home to seniors, single-mother students, and Sisters. Design decisions were carefully made to make living spaces that fit those of all ages, including using natural and warm materials, repurposing artwork from the Sister’s previous home, and furniture selection to meet the needs and comfort of the oldest resident to the youngest. Trinity Woods’ is designed to allow serendipitous interactions between the sisters, seniors, single mother students, and children to build a strong, caring, and safe community.
Thank you to the Judges of this 2023 ASID Wisconsin Awards, our design partners, and the contractors. A special thank you to our clients who have entrusted us with their vision, and congratulations on the recognition the ASID Award brings to your project!
