System’s Southeast College campus, the new 91,000sqft Learning Hub will consolidate a number of students services and support functions, including College administration, student registration, admissions, financial aid, student life and activities, multipurpose meeting facilities, workforce seminar rooms, and the college library.
The plan of this 3-story structure forms a crescent-like footprint to embrace a large grove of existing mature oak and pecan trees on the east side of the project site, while the outwardly curving west facade of the building,and its decorative concrete brick veneer and punched window composition, will serve as the dramatic culmination of the future “campus green” or central landscaped quad for the college. The orientation of the building on its site and its shape also allows key views into the interior of the campus from the major thoroughfare bordering the site.
