March 29, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the High Schools category.

The new University of South Florida Honors College is a six-level facility on the main campus in Tampa.    The design includes an enclosed but transparent ground level, event spaces, classrooms, art display spaces, music room, video and sound recording rooms, and offices. A centrally situated atrium connects all users into a single spatial experience with collaborative spaces hanging around the atrium. Enclosed with full-height glass for maximum views on the south side, the interior café space extends to an outdoor space for additional outdoor seating.
