Osborn High School

The challenge for this project was the tight timeline and limited access to funding. Most of the work had to be completed in a couple of months. Project Manger Jamie Claypool being a strong proponent of inclusive design interviewed multiple parties at Osborn High School including students, faculty and staff.

Students and faculty were interviewed for their ideas on how they might use the space and ways to make it function successfully. Jamie Claypool directed a young interior design team to a complete the project. 

Old wood from the bleachers was repurposed for use on the walls and columns to add interest and reduce costs. Over eight manufactures donated flooring materials for the new resource center and administrative offices.  

This project demonstrated to the students how design can directly impact their daily lives.
