Colorado College, Packard Hall
Our addition and renovation of Packard Hall supports the art and music programs at Colorado College. The design strengthens the campus connection to the existing 1976 building by Edward Larrabee Barnes.
The project highlights Packard Hall’s clear internal organization and massing, while increasing program space for the music and art departments, and providing a new public identity for the building.
Capping the existing circulation spine with a new staircase, a new two-story common area in the addition brings daylight to below-grade areas.
To create a cohesive composition of old and new, the addition’s form, material, and details responded to the volumetric, stucco-clad masonry of the original building.
