Ocean County College, Gateway Building

Ocean County College

The Gateway Building showcases a soaring entry atrium, vertically connecting all levels. The building masses touch the ground lightly in response to the sensitive Pine Barrens site. A breezeway under the building functions as an outdoor shaded plaza. From ground level at the top of the hill, the design ascends five stories to a meeting room and observation deck with views of Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
