The Laurel Oaks Career Campus in Wilmington, Ohio, originally consisted of two main buildings separated by an open plaza. The buildings had multiple entrances and no clear primary entry. The absence of dedicated corridors to individual rooms caused congestion and interruptions in lab spaces. The project sought to connect the two buildings and create a cohesive campus identity. Enclosing the plaza area and creating a new main entrance has unified the two buildings. A new “connector” entry provides a more organized pickup and drop-off area for students.
