The open-plan studios are designed to be both workspaces and gallery spaces for student and professional work.
Playing off of the rough texture of the building’s frame, large pivoting steel doors give spaces such as the second-floor architecture faculty offices flexibility, as does the custom-crafted metal paneling that adds definition to the faculty offices in the open-plan space.
Shattuck Hall’s original structure, including the neoclassical brick façade from 1915, was preserved and used as a central design element in the renovation.
In the hallways outside of the third-floor studios, tackable, movable panels provide space for additional display or critiques.
In the interior studios, the mechanical systems are left exposed so that the architecture students studying below can use them as learning tools.
