Located at the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains, the building’s stacked configuration of column-less floors will contain classrooms and lab space with a central interior atrium. A glass ceiling over the atrium allows natural light to illuminate the interior.

The grand stairs leading up the atrium are designed for students to gather, read and study in groups. The building will also feature a café, library resource room, and glass-walled classrooms offering a 360 degree view of the campus. The interior will showcase a signature wood-clad beam design throughout, and interchanging wood and concrete floors. Outdoor terraces on each floor will offer more instructional and gathering space. The roof will be outfitted with solar panels while the entire project seeks to achieve LEED Gold status.
