Daly Genik Architects designed this middle school (and an elementary school three years earlier) for Philip Lance, a visionary priest who started this alternative educational facility for a under-privileged section of Los Angeles, CA; the architects created the 8,500-square-foot middle school from an existing warehouse; additionally, they renovated a next-door, 10,500-square-foot office building to serve as school classrooms and offices. When it opened in the fall of 2003, Camino Nuevo Middle School served 250-300 students occupying 10 classrooms, 4 in the former warehouse and 6 in the office building's second and third floors. The project team included: John A. Martin and Associates, Electrical Engineers; IBE Consulting Engineers, Mechanical Engineers; Silver, Roth and Associates, Electrical Engineers; Miller Contracting, Building Contractors. Kevin Daly served as Daly Genik's Partner-in-Charge. Other participants from the Daly Genik Office included: Chirstopher Genik, Gerlinde Artzmann, Kyle Chad Clark, Josh Kenin, Alice Park, Brian Reiff, Chia Hung Wang and Jared Ward.

The Camino Nuevo Charter Academy Middle School contained approximately 20,000 square feet and cost a meagre $3 million.
