Fine Arts Building, Kentfield Campus
This project includes a new three-story, 22,500 square-foot Fine Arts Building adjacent to the current arts building (to be renamed “Performing Arts”). The structure takes advantage of its narrow width to operate on natural ventilation during the temperate season, improving indoor air quality. Large windows allow for natural daylighting. Native, drought-tolerant landscaping has been planted, not only around the building and in the new Arts Plaza connecting the two arts buildings, but also on the green roof. The use of sustainable building practices is concomitant with submission for LEED® Silver Certification.
