This 140,000 square foot facility provides an alternate curriculum for students who wish to pursue vocational programs of study focusing on automotive repair, information technology, and electronics technology. The school is organized in two levels, traversing a dramatic fifty-foot drop across the site towards a pond. Abundant natural daylight fills the media center and central commons on the north façade.
While this project was not designed to meet any LEED criteria, it was designed as a sustainable structure. The large amount of natural light offsets the need for supplemental artificial light through the use of daylight harvesting sensors. Additionally, the orientation of the glazed walls was focused to the north to reduce heat gain within the space.
