HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY

  • 2013 American School & University Outstanding Design

Hofstra University
Hempstead, NY

Hofstra is the largest private university on Long Island.  It is located on a 244 acre campus and has a student enrollment of 10,000 undergraduate and post-graduate students.  Our major projects include:

David S. Mack Fitness Center:  The original Recreation Center was an undersized and antiquated facility. A new glass pavilion replaced the original small lobby with a double-height entry and lounge, improving the Center’s visibility on campus.  The building’s original opaque walls were replaced with metal and glass partitions resulting in an open, transparent interior, promoting synergy between program spaces. The indoor track was redesigned to weave through these program spaces to facilitate interaction.  A new 7,000 sf addition contains four barrel-vaulted spaces for yoga, dance, spinning and weights.   The corridors are punctuated by skylights and feature built-in LED displays.

J. C. Adams Playhouse:  The Playhouse, an 1,100 seat, proscenium-style theater, is the premier cultural venue on campus.  It is used extensively by the University and surrounding community for performances and other events. Work included new finishes for the lobby and theatre, new acoustical treatments and new lighting.

Additional projects include interior renovation of the Mack Student Center and the Hofstra University Club.
