Jennifer & Billy Frist Hall at Currey Ingram Academy Grounds
Architect: Michael Ward, Allard Ward Architects
Currey Ingram Academy is a college prep K-12 school located on a picturesque 80-acre farm in rural Tennessee. The Jennifer and Billy Frist Hall is the sixth completed building and the heart of campus. The buildings draw inspiration from the arts and crafts style and use natural materials such as fieldstone to relate back to the rural environment. Frist Hall draws from this style as well as a more refined collegiate style. The goal for this building was to create a comfortable learning environment for the students. Almost every room in Frist Hall receives natural light and ventilation with large, operable windows. Marvin Windows provide the construction details, design flexibility and beauty that is required at Currey Ingram Academy. The products provide a strong architectural language that translates between a small office and the large, vaulted dining hall. By using consistent patterns and proportions, Marvin Windows not only tie the building together, but seamlessly link it to the rest of campus.
