Each student (or "Metster") has a personalized education plan that includes an internship with a Sacramento area professional business in the career field of their choice. Stafford King Wiese Architects participated in the program by employing two MET interns who were interested in the fields of architecture and sustainable design.
Stafford King Wiese Architects' architectural work started with a feasibility study to assist the District in determining the best site to establish a permanent home for the school. It was determined the school’s existing location in downtown Sacramento was the best location because of the school’s connection to the community and ability of the school’s educational program to continue to thrive in the central urban neighborhood.
Our work then moved to a master planning process to identify needed modernizations and additions to the campus. The master plan identified the need to renovate all 22,000 square feet of existing facilities and design a new 5,500 square foot classroom building. Our solutions complement the existing architecture and are reflective of The MET Sacramento’s educational philosophies and image the school wants to portray to the community.
