Skirkanich Hall

Project Description

Skirkanich Hall is sited between two buildings and acts as the gateway for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, as well as serving the needs of the Department of Bioengineering. The facade features a glazed green brick created for the project, cantilevered and layered glass curtain wall, zinc metal cladding and black granite at the ground level. The entire facade is based on a rainscreen design, which allows for a cleaner more maintenance-free building enclosure and crisper architectural sightlines.
