Description

The Borland Building provides a new collaborative environment for the College of Arts and Architecture’s Departments of Art History, Integrated Arts, Research in the Arts and Design, and the Institute for e-Learning. It includes new college administration offices and other central services.

Two 1960’s additions were excised from the building envelope, which were then carefully cleaned and seamlessly repaired. New windows to match original profiles were essential to achieve LEED Gold certification.

A new light monitor was added to the east wing roof, providing daylight to recaptured attic areas now within programmed space. Classrooms, studies, and offices were inserted within the former dairy laboratories on the ground floor.
