IHCC Rural Health Classroom Building

Ottumwa, Iowa

With the expansion of their Rural Health Education program, Indian Hills Community College required a larger and more up-to-date facility. Several goals were identified and achieved: 1) moving this department from the lower level of an existing building to a building that was more open and inviting to students and the public, 2) choosing a prominent entry point to the campus to create a signature building welcoming students and visitors, 3) providing well appointed public spaces for campus-wide and departmental use, and still keeping these areas flexible enough to also be used for educational purposes, and finally, 4) creating a very open feeling so that there would be a direct connection between the inside and the outside of the building.
