The Houston Community College Stafford Campus Learning Hub contains a number of different activities and functions to serve the students as well as the surrounding community. The intent of this project is to consolidate a number of student services and support functions, the library, student life & activities and general meeting spaces and computer labs. This project also will allow for more meeting space, student recreational spaces and food services that are currently not provided on the campus. The facility has three major design features, each relating in its own way with companion exterior spaces adjacent to the building. The building is approached from two completely different directions. Students and faculty will enter through the south entry from the adjacent parking areas. Visitors and tour groups will enter through the north atrium entry. The large glazed opening connects this space with the drop-off court nearby – merging the indoor and outdoor spaces into one.
