Luther High School – Onalaska, WI

Amazing photos from Shift Media House of the Luther High School project in Onalaska, WI! The design included a master plan for a multi-phase building project – this involved working closely with the school to determine their needs and goals to successfully design and document phased plans for the following spaces: new main entry, refreshed event entry, new auditorium addition to seat 840 guests, and 2-story classroom addition. The construction of the project has spanned the past several years with construction for additional phases still upcoming! To learn more about our education design services, visit our website:
