Homestead High School

New Cafeteria, Central Quad & Science Classrooms

Cupertino, CA

The first phase of a multi-phase master plan to transform and modernize the high school’s campus, QKA designed a dynamic new student quad building that includes a café, food court and kitchen facilities, as well as three new science classrooms and prep spaces. Increasing the connection to the quad and opening up the space with ample natural daylight through a fully glazed wall and clerestory windows, the café space is now substantially more inviting. The expanded quad provides ample outdoor seating areas for student gathering and a raised platform for performances and presentations. Additionally, the high volume ceiling provides functional practice space for cheerleading, drill and flag teams.

"The cafeteria building has completely transformed the campus. It is now a space that can host a variety of activities and programs on a regular basis, and the quad is now a welcoming gathering place for student activities."
