Project Brief:

This adaptive reuse project utilized the infrastructure of an existing athletic club building for transformation into a satellite campus for Wayne County Community College District. The open floor plan of the existing building provided flexibility for large open classroom. An addition supports a student gathering space boasting a high exposed structure with a glass curtain wall exterior. This configuration allows a tremendous amount of natural light to filter into the space. The idea of introducing natural light in to the building is carried through with clearstory windows between the classrooms and the common corridor. These clearstory windows allow a great deal of light to transfer to an otherwise static space.
