Rendering Shows CHS Interior Environments
Posted by Ed Petersen on 9/13/2018
Check out these renderings that show what some interior spaces may look like in our re-imagined Centralia High School! Graphics shown on the walls are placeholders and may not appear exactly as shown when the building is complete.
This image shows the secure entry space. This area is currently the open courtyard that visitors walk through to enter the building on the east side, facing the parking lot.
This image shows the front office space.
This is the "grand entrance." This space is currently the outdoor courtyard that visitors walk through to enter the buidling. During normal operations, the security doors shown here will be closed. Visitors will have to enter through the office and obtain clearance to enter the building. During public events, such as athletic events, the doors will be open and people can walk though. The brick wall on the right is the current exterior gymnasium wall.
This is what a typical classroom space may look like. Furniture can be moved to suit the needs of each individual class. The windows opening to the hallway feature blackout shades for use in security situations.
Hallways will feature light wells and "relight" windows that open into clasrooms to break up the wall space and bring natural light into the building.
There will be several shared breakout open learning spaces in the building.
The library will be moving into a space that is currently a large interior courtyard. It will feature exposed wood beams, and skylights that allow natural light into the room. The furniture can be moved to suit different needs.
In the commons, our designers at BCRA took advantage of an opportunity to showcase some of the beautiful natural wood in the structure. As in other spaces, skylights will allow natural light to flood the commons space. The expanded food service area will facilitate quicker meal service times.
