Brief: 

 

CAST Med is a charter high school in SAISD for students who are interested in medical careers. Three industry pathways have developed in its curriculum since its opening: medicine, biomedical research, and public health. We at T.DC Worked closely with SAISD and the CAST Network to create a high school that resembles a clinic more than a school. The spaces we created in phases one and two have made such a lasting impact they are now used as templates for many SAISD renovations.  Just another reason why our commercial interior design studio and our funky business model really work.

“... the thought was to build a  high school that resembles a clinic more than a school.”

How we came in clutch. 

One of the biggest impacts we made in CAST Med was helping an architect, who had only designed traditional schools, break the model of what a school should look like. We helped him understand how to resize all the classrooms, how to pack technology in each of them in a new way. Together we created an adaptable environment that allowed SAISD’s brand-new program the flexibility to evolve into the industry partner it is today.
