The DeForest Area School District selected Bray Architects to design the state-of-the-art DeForest Area High School STEM addition in an effort to expand its current offerings and create a cutting-edge space for students. The addition includes a large collaborative space, new shop areas, and support classrooms.
The project also included an extensive renovation to existing STEM spaces in order to enhance learning opportunities. Renovations were made to transform the existing shop areas into classroom and lab space. The classrooms feature agricultural and aquaponics specialty areas, as well as digital design spaces and science labs.
Construction of the Deforest Area High School STEM addition is complete and the new addition blends seamlessly with the existing building by featuring brown masonry to match the current exterior and new cement fiber panels.
