About The Project


This private school outgrew its location and required that a new site be in the North Oak Cliff area with more indoor and outdoor space with ample parking.

The Solution

With an eye for finding unique spaces and repurposing churches and other spaces, Solender/Hall worked closely with the school to find its new campus at 1822 W. 10th Street, formerly the long-time home of Calvary Baptist Church of Oak Cliff. Located in the Sunset Hill neighborhood of Oak Cliff, the new campus totals more than 60,000 square feet across two acres. The Kessler School plans restoration of the original neoclassical architecture, updates to interior spaces to better allow for personalized education and technology, repurposing the current sanctuary into a gymnasium/multi-use performance space and the addition of sports fields, playgrounds and other landscaped outdoor spaces.
