Design Brief:

Duke Ellington School of the Arts, a DC public high school, offers a curriculum focused on both arts and academics.

The original 1898 building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the subsequent additions were no longer adequate to meet the school’s mission. The district undertook a modernization project to expand and upgrade the facility. SGH evaluated the historic building components to remain and consulted on the design of new building enclosure systems.

Allstate installed carpet, and other hard surfaces throughout this project.
