Vista Adult School
This adult learning center is systematically renovating it’s entire campus. At the heart of the renovation is a new administrative building located at the school’s front entrance. The contemporary building drove the landscape design, which pulls materials from the building into the landscape. The glowing glass skin of the building lobby provides soft backlighting for the sculptural aloe and dragon trees flanking the grand staircase and entry court.
The asphalt courtyards between classrooms are re-designed to be unique and inviting spaces for students to have coffee and relax before class or engage in group discussion. The courtyards are designed to have a meandering circulation to encourage use and a variety of seating opportunities.
