Midlothian Heritage High School opened its doors to students in August 2014. Phase 1 of this project will serve up to 1,000 students. Midlothian ISD wanted the new high school to have all of the amenities as MHS, but the budget and lower student population did not allow for the construction of a full auditorium, which was one of the most expensive spaces in a high school project.
The VLK Architects consultant team worked closely with MISD officials to design a “World-Class Cafetorium” that serves as a cafeteria and an elegant performing space for the fine arts programs. The cafeteria has a traditional flat-floor design, so it functions well for student dining. The walls and ceiling are acoustically treated and shaped with elegant wood panels to provide the high-quality performance space.
An innovative use of a retracting wall, made by Skyfold, separates the black box theater from the cafeteria with a solid wall that, at the turn of a switch, retracts up above the ceiling to create the proscenium opening for the stage. This unique solution provides maximum flexibility for each space while saving millions of dollars for the District. See article printed in VLK Experience Midlothian Magazine(see pgs. 20-21) Photos
