Project Details

Renovations at Mukwonago High School opened up the second floor and created multiple resource areas for small – and large-group collaboration. We added innovative STEAM spaces, an interactive library setting, and multi-purpose cafeteria spaces with ample natural light.

A new gymnasium includes ample seating for spectators and wood flooring. It’s accented by pops of the school’s signature blue and yellow and custom wall graphics. The new auditorium features a 3,600 square foot stage, stagecraft storage and scene shop, piano garage, orchestra pit, and seating for 800 spectators.
