Sachse High School

Fall 2001

As the sixth new high school that WRA has designed for Garland ISD, this design provided a new identity using rugged masonry and metal roofing in a Texas Vernacular theme which the City of Sachse later adopted. Includes a 1,000-seat auditorium, 766-seat dining-commons, and a three-court gymnasium with 2,000 seats. Each of these large spaces are situated on the main circulation spine and function independently of each other for simultaneous activities.
