The Humanities Building at SUNY Purchase complements the school’s performing arts center by offering students who are not necessarily arts majors an opportunity to gain experience in the arts. Kliment Halsband Architects designed a gut renovation of Venturi & Rauch’s 1973 Humanities building, transforming the building functionally and visually. The renovated facility includes offices, 29 classrooms and several specialized spaces. Kirkegaard worked on the audiovisual for the classrooms and provided audiovisual and acoustics consulting for a 207-seat drama theater, a 107-seat lecture hall, and a TV/broadcast studio. The building has been certified LEED Gold.
