University Heights Intermediate Center

Jonesboro, Arkansas

University Heights Intermediate School houses 3rd-5th grade students for Nettleton School District located in northeast Jonesboro. The 80,000 square foot school has three classroom wings (one for each grade), a library, a kitchen, a cafeteria, administrative offices, a parent center, and a gymnasium.

The building is clad in brick, stucco, and two different metal panels. The main corridor is a tall space with clerestory windows to allow ample southern light to filter into the spaces. The library has a double height ceiling also with tall glazing to allow natural light to filter in through the deep punched windows which diffuse the daylight. The cafeteria has a similar tall ceiling that steps down beneath the structure allowing for a unique dining experience for the students.
