University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy

The new Science and Engineering Center at University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy is part of a continual transformation of their 80-year-old campus. Embedded within a historic campus of 1920s facilities inspired by the Spanish Renaissance, the four-story addition replaces a one-story building with dated and insufficient science lab facilities and creates space for highly sought robotic, science and engineering programs. The addition doubles the dedicated space for all science disciplines, including biology, chemistry, and physics, as well as provides a CAD lab, writing lab, diverse breakout spaces and flexible classrooms fully equipped with technology to lead the region in STEM education. Curious students can view glimpses of exposed building systems throughout the addition and observe lab activities from intentional vantage points.

The image of the addition respects the surrounding, historic fabric of the campus while simultaneously expressing a contemporary interpretation consistent with the innovative initiatives of the University of Detroit Jesuit mission. Interior finishes include salvaged components that evoke nostalgia and familiarity. The 40,000 sf facility reinforces the school’s vitality and leadership in academic quality and commitment to science and engineering curriculum.
