Indian Springs Dormitories
Indian Springs, AL
Indian Springs School is a private boarding school located just outside Birmingham that enrolls 270 students in grades eight through twelve. Aging dormitories drove the school to commission the design of new dorm facilities. Two new dormitory buildings provide age and gender-appropriate housing for 46 boys and 46 girls. Each building has two wings that meet at a central common room which functions as a social hub.
A two-story faculty residence, with private entrance and enclosed yard, anchors the end of each wing of the dorms. An open porch at each common room connects the dorm to the central campus green. The design provides a comfortable, safe, and open structure, balancing institutional function with a residential atmosphere.
