Jury feedback on the project included: “This renovation project successfully creates an identity for the high school campus by standardizing site features … with a design style that responds to the history of the facility. It also successfully and smartly addresses some of the design challenges (bike parking, desire path is a trail that becomes an established path) typical of many campus environments.”
