The Corbin Independent High School design solution, dramatically improved the functionality as well as appearance of the City’s high school. The new two-story math and science wing addition, created the opportunity to significantly change the appearance of the school, by creating a new entrance and entry lobby featuring a “Wall of Honor”.
A performing arts lobby was also added to the existing auditorium and vocal classroom areas, to serve as an after hours and staff meeting space. Within the performing arts addition, adjacent to the existing auditorium and gymnasium, a new band room with an office and practice room was added.
Extensive outdoor improvements were also made, including a 100-seat outdoor amphitheater, which serves as an outdoor classroom, performance area and dining area. Centrally located, the amphitheater connects the Area Technology Center and high school thereby unifying the campus. Native landscape plantings also help to define the space, highlighting circulation patterns while adding color and visual interest to the site.
