Post Higher Education Academic Building

The proposed design is a two story building as stipulated by the Guideline for Commercial Buildings. The new building reflects the height of the existing high school. Special care was taken in incorporating details from the existing school while modernizing them for the contemporary building. The design of the Educational Building appears as multiple buildings instead of one large building. The composition also took into account the ratio of window to play up the storefront. In addition, proposed finishes that were appropriate to the neighborhood were incorporated in a more contemporary manner. The exterior materials are a direct response to the historic context and materials utilized in the surrounding neighborhood.
