- A comprehensive campus master plan that addresses the future needs of Walnut Hills High School through a large-scale phased renovation and addition program.
- To maintain campus functionality at all times, SHP meticulously planned the four-year construction project, which included two demolitions and nine overlapping construction phases.
- The program includes a 262,000sf renovation of the 1931 portion of the building that preserves its historical features while introducing technological advancements; a 77,000sf addition that houses a new music wing, 15 classrooms, a 1,200-seat gymnasium and a six-lane swimming pool; and exterior site improvements such as courtyards, a plaza and a outdoor dining area.
- A notable solution was the creation of flexible swing spaces—SHP customized off-the-shelf modular classrooms and periodically modified each space to fit the needs of the school as they evolved.
For over two and a half decades, SHP has partnered with Walnut Hills High School—a prestigious college preparatory institution within the Cincinnati Public School System. With a storied legacy of educational distinction, both locally and nationally recognized, the school’s tight urban campus posed a unique challenge, requiring creative design, technical expertise, and collaborative engagement to propel its legacy of excellence into the future.
