Centerbrook Working on Ivy Campuses
Published on July 27th, 2011
Centerbrook is currently doing design work on three Ivy League campuses – Yale University, Harvard University, and Dartmouth College – as well as on a faculty residence in Princeton, New Jersey.
Yale and Dartmouth are longtime clients. The firm currently is doing a Master Plan for the Yale Peabody Museum that addresses exhibits, events spaces, collections, and interior organization. Among its recently completed projects at Yale are Kroon Hall (with Hopkins Architects), the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center, the Lewis-Walpole Library, the Kenney Center and Jenson Plaza at Yale Bowl, and Reese Stadium.
Centerbrook recently completed a new Master Plan for renovating and expanding Dartmouth’s Hood Museum of Art. The project encompasses a nearby building and provides for art study classrooms, galleries, museum staff offices, and systems upgrades. It also establishes a prominent new entrance on the famous Dartmouth Green. Centerbrook designed the original Hood Museum, which opened in 1985. Other recent Centerbrook projects on campus include the new Floren Varsity House, renovations of Wilson Hall, as well as renovations and additions to the Tuck School of Business, Wilder Physics Building, and the Steele Chemistry Building.
At Harvard, the firm is doing an interior fit out of new offices for the Financial Operations and Analysis Group inside a 1929 Art Deco building at Boston’s Landmark Center. At Princeton, Centerbrook is designing a single family residence just off campus for new faculty in an historic neighborhood enclave.
The firm is currently designing a number of projects at Quinnipiac University, including a new medical school, as well as an academic and science building at Southern Connecticut State University. Centerbrook has worked on 40 college and university campuses nationwide.
