Orlando Tech is a technical education center operated by Orange County Public Schools. The school has offered technical education in Orange County since 1933. Its location since 1981 is a 135,000 square-foot, five-story building in downtown Orlando.
Prior to the remodel, the open commons area was not fully utilized by students and faculty. The goal of the project was to create an inviting environment for all to enjoy and to attract additional students to the vocational training programs offered at the facility.
FCI created a more intimate environment by surrounding the area with booths on one side and a counter unit with sea grass panels on the other side of the space. Comfortable, padded booth seating combined with vibrant colored laminated tables to create a cozy space to dine, study and socialize. Bar stools combined with the contoured counter offers attractive, yet efficient seating for individual students.
