Dover High School Wins AIA NH Design Merit Award
We would like to extend our congratulations to HMFH Architects, our own Iris Yung-Ching Lin and Charles Kozlowski, and all project partners on their AIA New Hampshire Design Merit Award for Dover High School in Dover, NH. Halvorson | Tighe & Bond Studio developed a pragmatic site plan that responds to the complexity of the school’s programming and reconfigures 2/3 of the 30-acre campus to accommodate the expanded building complex, parking lot, and sports fields. Designed to enhance the 21st-century academic learning experience, the new Dover High School complex also serves as a Regional Career Technical Center to prepare and empower students with future career and technical proficiency.
The entry experience was enhanced with a red maple tree-lined roadway and new sidewalk, promoting safe vehicular and pedestrian circulation. An accessible entry plaza overlooking the softball fields and drop-off/pickup area provides seating and colorful plantings to serve as a welcoming gateway to the school and a hub for social interaction and gathering. The Dover High School courtyard provides multiple opportunities including an outdoor environment for gathering, reflection, and study.
