01 Project Overview

A modified prototype design is providing student-centered learning environments for Olentangy’s middle school curriculum.

Fanning Howey collaborated with Olentangy educators to rethink the district’s existing middle school prototype. The design creates a new innovation hub along the central corridor, comprised of a student collaboration area, a modern media center and a maker space. Fanning Howey designers elongated academic wings to accommodate additional classrooms and inserted collaboration space in the extended learning areas. The design also improves upon the previous prototype by expanding and reorganizing special education classrooms, adding more spectator seating in the gymnasium, increasing locker room size and expanding the orchestra room.
