D'Youville College of Arts, Science, & Education

D'Youville College, Buffalo, NY

The new School of Arts, Sciences and Education will house a series of lab, classroom, office and support program space centered on a two story atrium designed to encourage student interaction and create a hub for building circulation. This atrium space is entered from Niagara Street through a historic façade which is to remain, or through a contrasting modern entry on Prospect Street. The project includes restoration of three stories in an existing building to remain and a four story new building which is interconnected by the atrium. The Prospect side of the atrium features a large glass façade that looks to the campus center and creates visual connection of the active interior and approaching students, staff and visitors.
