Dorm A Renovation
Jackson, Mississippi | Mississippi Schools for the Blind and the Deaf
This Project transformed the 9,693sf barracks-style dormitory into a home-like setting featuring bedroom suites with private bathes and individual room temperature controls. The Project created a home-like environment not only through smaller bedrooms, but through its auxiliary spaces. During the program stage a salon was added for the teenager girls who are said to spend considerable time here. Other spaces requiring insightful design included warm Family Rooms, flexible Computer Studies, intimate Kitchen/Break Room, and soft outdoor spaces. A warm interior color scheme was created with this Project. The school administrator indicated they will use this scheme for future residential buildings.
