Multipurpose and Conferencing

Over the past decade, Hummel Architects has transformed the former manufacturing facility into three fully-functional components of Idaho’s education system, which includes West Ada School District’s District Services Center, Renaissance High School and Idaho State University Health Science Center. With the help of the school district, a consolidated plan was created with common spaces to encourage department interactions. For Phases 2 & 3 of the project, the goal was to create a facility with flexible spaces that offered students programs in International Baccalaureate, Associates of Art School, Vocational Technology, and Culinary Arts. The final phase includes the completion of over 20,000 square-feet of empty space on the second floor and renovating over 10,000 square-feet of the fitness area and multipurpose and conferencing. Design goals included adding natural light into the former fabrication area via skylights as well as adding a second floor to maximize the usable square footage in the large volume “box”.
