Kean University’s new College of Business and Public Management features large, student-focused communal spaces with dramatic multi-level connections to each floor. The school provides the several thousand students with a variety of spaces to interact, collaborate, study, and relax throughout the day.
Early conceptual visions for the exterior window pattern and corresponding facade design were translated to Swisspearl modular cladding for a clean exterior façade. The dark, slightly recessed facade in the base area lets the bright building volume hover above. Linear grooving reinforces the impression, lending the anthracite-colored panels a matte restraint.
