Big news recently for PNCA’s residence hall ArtHouse, which opened for students in the fall of 2013. First ArtHouse was awarded the green building LEED, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, sliver certification for new construction.
Then this week the Daily Journal of Commerce recognized ArtHouse as one of the top new construction projects for the year. This six-story building, designed by Thomas Robinson of LEVER Architecture and located on the North Park Blocks, has many environmental-friendly features that also serve art students well including a
rain garden and patio in the center of the building, natural light pulled into the building through cutaways at the end of each corridor, expansive operable windows, generous bike parking and custom furniture made from wood salvaged from the site’s previous building. Arthouse is part of PNCA’s campus hub just a five minute walk from the new campus at the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design and across the street from the College’s Museum of Contemporary Craft.
