Open Space

Ss. John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School

A co-ed, college prep Catholic high school in South Philadelphia wants to create a warmer, more welcoming entrance, use extra space in its cafeteria as a student lounge, and transform a former library into a writing and project lab to meet contemporary student needs. The conceptual plan offers a strategy to phase in these new amenities and brings visual branding and green stormwater management practices onto campus.
