Fitz Hall at the University of Dayton. The design for the LEED CI Gold Certified facility provided relief to the long corridor view by jogging corridors and creating public space “nodes” to provide relief from the standard hallway. Each node has accent ceiling treatments, a wide range of seating options and acoustical treatments to provide the best space possible for interaction. Interior color schemes are as light and airy as pos-sible—clear stained wood doors, pastel color bases, and clear anodized framing. Classrooms walls to corridors are opened up with a large expanse of window wall, which was treated and detailed as an object so that there is seating space along with windows to maintain active corridor life. The wall contrasts the darkness of the classroom window walls with the lighter colors in the remainder of the floor; reinforcing the object nature of this large glass wall. Linear patterns are used throughout all finishes and even in the artwork custom designed for the spaces. LEARNING BY DESIGN SPRING 2015 | www.learningbydesign.biz 87
