Gateway Community College* | Maricopa County Community College District, Phoenix, AZ

The campus renovation transformed a singular existing 85,000 SF windowless education building sited on an asphalt lot into a welcoming, vibrant pedestrian friendly campus with a new identity. Canary focused on energizing the interior spaces to respond to student needs with graphics and wayfinding that flow through all interior and exterior spaces, conveying the spirit and energy of the community college.

To bring energy and light into the double loaded corridors, the design team carved out corners of the hallways, creating student gathering areas with skylights and graphics that relate to each corresponding educational program. These collaboration spaces reinforced the identity of each department within the larger campus.

In addition to the existing building, renovating a new building to the west created a central courtyard running though the campus. Exterior wayfinding and directories clearly define entry points into either building and tie the campus together. Throughout the project, material selections, accent colors and introduction of pedestrian-scale textures relay the community college as a source of pride in the neighborhood, appear welcoming, and form a cohesive campus.
