BROWN COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL ART DEPARTMENT RENOVATION + ADDITION

Nashville, IN

AT A GLANCE:
  • New Main Art Space with Movable Furniture
  • New Hallway Display
  • Thirty Seats for New Computer Lab
  • New Photo Lab Area with Special Lighting
  • New Exterior Art Space with Rain Garden

PROJECT DETAILS:

The Brown County High School Administration desired a completely new and updated space for their students, which involved studies of daylight, as well as how to incorporate new technology with the existing space. Initially, the space was divided with support in the middle, but Lancer + Beebe moved all support spaces to be adjacent to the hallway, which transformed the classroom space into one large collective area where students could breakout in small groups according to their own academic intent-physical arts (drawing, painting, etc.), photography, ceramics/sculpture, and a computer lab. An exterior patio was also added to expand the learning environment to the exterior, add daylight, and add more space for student to display artwork to their community. Display areas were also added to the Kiln and Hallway, with similar materials being used throughout the space.
