Austin Community College-Highland Campus

Austin Community College-Highland Campus

lauckgroup was chosen to assist in transforming an existing 2-story department store in the Highlands Mall into an innovative and technology-focused campus for Austin Community College. The space highlights materials such as reclaimed wood, exposed concrete and glass contrasting with strategically placed bold saturated hues. The urban campus incorporates classrooms, science and computer labs, administrative, faculty and student support offices, and a centralized testing facility. In addition to these traditional educational spaces, an Emporium will focus on student-centered pedagogy. The design solution offers flexibility to accommodate future changes in program focus.
