A small learning community geared for artistically-minded high school students wanting to pursue a career in the design and fashion industry. Students will have a curriculum full of art, fashion and graphic design classes, as well as hands-on training with various materials to execute their designs.
The vacant building that was previously used as a supermarket has high ceilings but very few windows. The preliminary design concept will create room boxes within the high open space of the building. This allows for a series of educational spaces and a large gathering space to occupy the main floor, with proposed skylights naturally illuminating the area.
