Fall River, MA – Atlantis Charter School has recently opened. The $35 million K-12 campus along South Watuppa Pond in Fall River, designed by Studio G Architects and built by Agostini Bacon Construction Companies, was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
The 96,000sf waterfront facility features three wings wrapped around a central landscaped courtyard, providing an optimized learning environment for up to 1,400 students.
Work on the gymnasium wing is now complete, as well. It features a high school regulation-sized basketball court, bleachers, locker rooms, and offices. This spring, work is ramping up on the new track and field complex.
The new campus was designed with an eye toward healthy learning and sustainability. The classrooms have large windows that provide natural light with water and nature views. An air displacement system and low-VOC products have been used throughout the building for improved indoor air quality.
The building’s exterior façades are clad with grey ground-face concrete masonry in patterns reminiscent of geological strata. The native New England plants found at the site are carried through into the plantings around the new school building.
That project is scheduled for completion in July.
