Voris' Master Facility Plan
The Voris Community Learning
Center is a two-story building located south of the current
building near Firestone Park. The entry drive, parking lot and
entrance face Glenmount Avenue, with a covered entrance
cheerfully greeting visitors as they enter the building. Pitched roofs reflecting the
residential character of the community cover dominant portions
of the building. Dual brick tones articulate the building's
exterior, creating the effect of piers at the academic wing.
Large windows are placed in classrooms, the media center and
cafeteria. Clerestory light will pour into the main lobby from
large windows. Common areas such as the gym, music room, art room, media center and student dining are centralized. The public can use these spaces after hours, and classroom wings can be locked for safety and privacy.
All designs are the work of an
architectural firm from one of six firms, which comprise the
Akron Architectural Group. AAG architects work with Akron Public
Schools architects on each site. The architectural firm
that designed the Voris Community Learning Center was Moody Nolan
Inc. Fred Herr was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
