Tarrant County College Southeast Campus Expansion

The existing building consisted of one large building with multiple entrances and no clear definition of a front door, wayfinding, brand, and lacked connections to the outdoors. The design strategy of this additions and renovations project was to create a modern learning environment that is designed around student and faculty experience, create a new campus gateway, and enhance connectivity with the community.

Perkins&Will designed two additions along the north and south axis to the existing building. The north building is a small welcome pavilion that houses student services functions and creates the primary entrance to the campus. The welcome pavilion sits in a formally landscaped quad and creates a well-defined axis through the existing building. The second building is located on the south side and is separated from the existing building with a student centric landscape garden and houses a café that spills into the outdoors. The south building is lifted from the ground to create a second entry portal into the campus.
