Institutional Work: University & College

Added on by Chris Gebhart.

Recent work in the University and College space has been interesting and rewarding.  Much of the interior design work shown below is creating comfortable and enriching educational spaces for students and facility to learn, work and collaborate in.

First, it's always rewarding to visit a space years after it was built to see how it's being used and whether the client is happy (they love it). 

The gallery within the Fulginiti Pavilion at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus which I worked on years ago, while employed at AR7/NAC Architecture, has a beautiful polished concrete floor that still looks amazing and gives the minimal space a feeling of lightness and brightness (great work by Milender White Construction):

Fortunately, we've been able to do design a number of other projects on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus since then, including a remodel/expansion project of 6 student lounge spaces (furniture by others).  See more in the project pages


Gebhart Studio also had the pleasure of teaming with NeoEra to help design a Radiation Lab at Metropolian State University of Denver on the downtown Auraria campus.  The design made the best use out of a very awkward existing space and warmed it up with wood casework, good efficient lighting, and a somewhat flexible layout (tough for a lab).  Sensitive existing equipment had to be accounted for and designed around, which added to the space planning challenges.  The project is currently on hold for extra funding needed for building infrastructure upgrades:

Finally, I've been involved in a number of commercial space interior remodel projects at the Community College of Aurora: a number of new office suites, a testing center for incoming students, a faculty lounge and the vice chancellor's suite.  Pictures to come.
