North Technical

Special School District of St. Louis County | Florissant, Missouri

From 2018 to 2023, the district embarked on a series of transformative renovations aimed at enhancing learning environments at North Technical High School. These projects ranged from upgrading security and administrative areas to creating new, state-of-the-art spaces for their cosmetology and dental sciences programs, as well as modernizing the welding shop. The renovations were designed to cater to the unique needs of students and staff, creating inspiring spaces that foster education and career development.

Both existing spaces for the cosmetology program were outdated, and there was a pressing need to renovate due to the popularity of the program. The solution involved renovating one of the existing spaces, and converting the space on the first level basement, with its low ceilings, into a contemporary salon, by leaving structural elements exposed and adding linear lighting attached to the underside of bar joists. This not only brightened the space but also gave it a modern, industrial feel that enhanced the room's atmosphere and funtionality.

In addition, a new dental suite was designed to have a polished, professional office-like appearance, transforming an old shop space into modern, functional educational areas. By transforming outdated spaces into modern, functional and educational areas, the district not only addressed immediate needs but also laid a strong foundation for future growth and success.
