TACKarchitects was tasked with crafting a cutting-edge robotics lab along with an adjacent lecture classroom. Through the use of illuminated panels, hot-rolled steel accents, and a textured acoustical ceiling the design was pulled into the main building entrance exposing all students and visitors to the renovated robotics and STEM program areas. With the goal of recruiting future students into the school’s engineering technology program, framed openings create a visual connection to the Robotics wing in which STEM instruction and robotics competition training take place. Existing corridor lockers were replaced with large boxed picture windows allowing both views into the classroom as well as opportunities to display VEX Robotics awards and other achievements. Both the lab and classroom are separated by a glass collapsible wall, allowing both spaces to flow seamlessly into each other as desired, or closed for simultaneous teaching opportunities.
