Fulbright Building by Marlon Blackweel Architect in Fayetteville, Arkansas

October 07, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Designed by Marlon Blackwell Architect, Fulbright Building located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. From Architect : ” A renovation project intended to revitalize the civic quality of a historically and architecturally significant library building, while inserting a new program of professional offices. The Fulbright Building was built in 1962 to house the Fayetteville Public Library and remained the Library’s home until the Library moved to a new facility in 2004. Respecting the original design of the building the steel frame structure has remained relatively untouched. The upper floor of the building is lit from exterior glass windows and skylights cut into the existing roof. To make the lower floor more marketable, holes were cut in the upper floor slab below each of the skylights and staircases dropped into them. The 1990s addition, a double height space with a stair and handicap ramp, was converted into a large conference lounge area with an acoustical ‘shroud,’ clad in black zinc, suspended above. The sculptural figure of the ‘shroud’ acts as an art piece seen through the glass from the street. ”

The project is a three level design with the event or ice level at grade with the rear or “back of house” end of the building. The level up is the main or public concourse, integrated with the rolling terrain of the campus and located to take advantage of a natural high point on the site. As a result, the front doors of the facility are also at grade allowing for easy accessibility for all visitors. The third level of the complex includes 20 private suites, “loge boxes”, a large multi-purpose lounge, and smaller party rooms.
