Bishop High School Website

Bishop, California

The Bishop High School Learning Commons was designed by a collaborative team that included: school and district administration, Rudolph Construction and D&D Resources sourced all the furniture. GROUPWERK's Doug McIntosh was the design lead for the interior layout of furniture and AV on this project. AV installation was performed by Melzak Media. The school's vision was to take the 1970's traditional library set up and transform it into a 21st century learning space divided into unique learning zones.
