Tampa Bay Campus

01 Challenge

In early 2017, BHDP entered into a strategic design partnership with Galen to establish a consistent and forward-thinking brand for the rapidly expanding college to create a higher education campus experience throughout their multiple campuses. The challenge for the Tampa Bay facility was to create a design strategy that transforms an aging corporate office building into an innovative learning environment.

02 Solution

The renovated facility is inspiring, welcoming, and innovating. The classrooms have advanced technology and flexible seating arrangements to accommodate different teaching styles, and there are breakout and huddle rooms for collaboration. The entire space has lots of light and color which has enhanced the learning experience for current students and has enticed prospective students.
