SWBR recently completed the design of the New Liberal Arts Building. The purpose of this design was to create a building that is an impetus for enhancing the four core areas established by SUNY Brockport to obtain optimal student success and national recognition.
Our design team focused on designing the building to maximize the experience of learning environments and quality of place, as well as providing academic engagement.
We understand the synergies of the chosen site and how it relates to the four core areas. Studying the pedestrian traffic flow allowed us to develop collision spaces along internal streets, where faculty and students can informally gather and engage as an extension of the formal learning environment.
This building has earned LEED Gold certification and integrates strategies that will maximize sustainable design concepts. The design reduces energy consumption by allowing natural daylight to penetrate atrium spaces, and minimizes exterior walls.
