School of the Art Institute (SAIC)
Role: Project Architect w/Valerio Dewalt Train
Client: School of the Art Institute in Chicago
Program: 19,000 sf Renovation of Common Areas
This 19,000 SF renovation aims to provide a Student Center for the School of the Art Institutes diverse student body. Looking to give a home base for students, faculty and staff, the Center combines spaces for meeting, studying, lounging and dining while offering a sense of identity to the student body, which is currently segregated among several facilities in Chicagos Loop. The Leroy Neiman Student Center, and its small art gallery, is fully equipped with high-end technology, presenting endless opportunity for student interaction and presentation. The Legacy classrooms created four new learning spaces to support continued campus growth. The new wing boasts exposed concrete floors and structure, generous ceiling heights and an eye-level view of the Chicago El tracks with very little of the noise.
