Dover High School + Regional Career Technical Center
High School Grounds & Courtyard | Dover, New Hampshire
Faced with a growing student population and an aging building, the Dover High School & Regional Career Technical Center engaged HMFH Architects and Halvorson Design Partnership for the design of a new building and site as a part of the larger district campus. The team is currently involved in an intricate phasing process that offers minimal interruption to student learning throughout construction.
The team has designed a site program that accommodates steep grade changes and features parking for 440, improved vehicle circulation, and athletic fields for softball, soccer and tennis. HDP also created an open air courtyard, accessible from both the ground and second floor levels, which offers students an outdoor learning environment and amphitheater. The site also features a new barn which will serve the vocational school’s Animal Science program.
