Relocation of Art Gallery Creates Centralized Arts Community
In collaboration with Ann Beha Architects and St. Paul’s School, Halvorson | Tighe & Bond Studio designed a series of landscape enhancements for the Crumpacker Art Gallery and Moore Arts Loft.
The relocation of the existing gallery to the former Freeman Student Center—near the new school theater and music and dance buildings—creates a central and more integrated arts community on campus. In addition, the nearby Moore Hall was expanded to create new studios and an outdoor sculpture garden.
Halvorson carefully designed the outdoor spaces around each of the buildings, including the reconfiguration and regrading of the Quad, to improve accessibility and address the steep slope. A stepped arts terrace with a sloped walkway for accessibility, special paving, and new colorful plantings creates a welcoming and inspirational outdoor learning and gathering space for students.
