Acorn Community High School

OCV converted this 80,000 square foot former factory into a high school for 800 students.

The design of classrooms took advantage of existing large industrial windows to fill the school with natural light. Science labs, a library, gymnasium, cafeteria and kitchen were also designed to fit into and work with the existing historic structure.
