SUNY Purchase College Physical Education Building






Client:
SUNY Purchase College

Project Scope:
KG+D collaborated with Purchase College to complete a facade restoration and renovation project for their Physical Education building, which was designed by modernist architect Gwathmy Siegel and constructed in the early seventies. The pool in the gymnasium has been the primary cause for the facades’ deterioration; as part of the project the team redesigned the pool’s HVAC system to properly ventilate and remove moisture, strategically reconstructed or rebuilt portions of the exterior facade, replaced the atrium skylight and builiding windows, added skylights to the gymnasium to provide natural light and created ADA accessibility by adding a walkway as a balcony in the atrium.

SUNY Purchase College Dining Hall

Client:
SUNY Purchase College

Project Scope:
KG+D collaborated with Purchase College to restore the exterior facade of their Dining Hall, which was designed by well-known modernist architect Edward Larrabee Barnes and constructed in the early seventies. Related to seventies detailing, age and extreme use, the envelope was in need of significant restoration as evidenced by leaks, cracking and portions of facades that were leaning outward. Our team worked to restore the condition of the building while preserving the original design intent.
