The University of Akron – Institute for Human Science + Culture
This 11,000 SF project involved renovating the existing third and fourth floors of the existing 1915 commercial building. These previously unoccupied floors were transformed into archival storage, display galleries, classrooms, offices and support space.
A large section of the fourth floor was carved out to create a daylit two-story space to tie both floors together visually. The exterior improvements include a new canopy at the entrance, new metal panel and glass curtain wall infill, and color-changing LED lights.
