Morton College

Classroom Addition

Morton College had not expanded its facilities in decades despite steady enrollment growth over the years.  In order to respond to a culmination of space needs, the college engaged our team to develop a new Classroom Addition to address the most urgent needs on campus.  These space needs included the following:

  • (5) Learning Studios
  • Nursing Classroom
  • Early Childhood Education Classroom
  • Adult Education Classrooms
  • Faculty Offices
  • Student Lounge Space

The two-story addition was designed as a natural extension of the existing campus structures, utilizing similar materials and proportions, while at the same time, incorporating a glassy stair tower facing the community in an effort to create a sense of transparency into the new facility.
