Architectural Block : Commercial Entry : PALM HARBOR UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL
< Back to 2016 Awards Categories
Palm Harbor University High School:
PHUHS is an upscale private high school located in historic Palm Harbor, Florida. The original high school was built around 2000; the intent was to match the existing structure as close as possible.
The structure is a double-wythe cavity wall split-face and ground-face veneer with a CMU block back-up: a favorite design amongst the building industry! The split-face block gives the appearance of natural stone, whilst the ground-face block exposes and accents the various tones of the aggregates.
Speaking of aggregates, this distinguished project implemented a darker aggregate that is integrated within the mix: the result is a distinctive and attractive school that captivates the creativity and resourcefulness of concrete masonry. The congruency of incorporating the multi-faceted aggregates within the architectural units provides the flexibility and long term endurance that concrete masonry units are known for. Truly stunning!
