Renee integrated coarse stucco and horizontal

corrugated metal in white and black as a pattern

signifying the major spaces. Over the entry and

in the main construction space, she played with

pattern in the curtain walls by replacing some

glass panels with metal panels that are orange, the

YouthBuild school color. The orange color is very

prominent in the main entry and the construction

facility, emphasizing the importance of construction

to the YouthBuild philosophy.
