Malibu Middle School
Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District added a two story modular school building that features 12 classrooms and three sets of restroom to the campus. Designed by partnership HMC Architects, the new middle school classrooms was designed to suit 21st-century learning, improve the flow of access and campus space.
- The building addition to the school experienced speedier permitting by the local county board and assembling than a traditionally constructed building, ultimately meeting tight deadlines.
- The modular building was designed to achieve an improved flow of access to the school, decrease in footprint and to create additional quad space.
- The building is a completely modular structure and constructed from repurposed shipping containers with an elevator occupying a traditional construction in the front of the building. The exterior lighting is designed to complement Malibu's dark sky goals by using low lighting temperature LED fixtures that are motion-sensor equiped to dim when there is no activity.
