We partnered with SPGB Architects to renovate classrooms on the campus of Wright State University. Over the summer of 2015, interviews were conducted with both faculty and students to identify the advantages and deficiencies in the current classrooms. The findings were used to inform the renovation of a variety of different classrooms. Two prototype classrooms were renovated as part of Phase I, bringing these outdated classrooms into the 21st Century using an array of different architectural solutions such as new lighting, glass marker boards and carpet throughout.
Phase II included $4.7 m. to renovate 41 classrooms in 14 buildings that provided 1,580-seats in 31,665-sf. The improvements included handicap accessibility, code compliance, room finishes, lighting and controls, power and data distribution, instructional technology, and furnishings. Maraye Design Studio also provided furniture that will support the multiple pedagogies which currently exist on campus, while also accommodating future learning styles.
