C.A. Johnson High School Additions and Renovations|
Columbia, SC

John Bowman Architect in partnership with Stevens and Wilkinson of South Carolina provide design and construction services to renovate and make additions to C.A. Johnson High School.


The new design includes renovation to the existing cafeteria, science labs, health clinic, and front entrance lobby. The new construction called for a new 2,000 seat gymnasium, 600 seat auditorium, and associated support spaces.  JBA was also hired later by The School District to provide a new press box for the baseball field


The design utilizes the mixture of wood, brick, and aluminum composite panels throughout the exterior and interior of the design. The new additions provide a new modernized look into the future for the existing historic school, while respecting its existing character.
