Community Colleges

Creating a pipeline for life-sustaining
careers while addressing economic
and achievement divides.

Our philosophy

We design buildings, spaces and strategies that offer accessible education, career training and a gateway to four-year colleges.

Amid income polarization, accelerated costs of higher education and an increasingly competitive job market, community colleges are a beacon of light and opportunity for underserved students and their surrounding communities. We design community college facilities that not only better prepare students to seize in-demand careers, but help communities address the achievement gap and create equity across demographic divides.
