A comfortable space for students
The campus lacked a strong arrival identity and an outdoor place for students. We took care of that. We designed a classroom addition that creates a sense of entry for the campus, drawing the eye through the buildings and into the grass common behind them. A new amphitheater and pavilion, built into the topography of a large detention basin, give students a place to gather and relax outside the classroom. With an eye firmly on the climate, we provided shade and wind protection for different times of day and changing environmental conditions.
