Nevada State University Liberal Arts and Sciences Building


Henderson, NV

2008 SW Contractor Best Masonry

The Nevada State University Liberal Arts and Sciences Building sits on 5 acres of the 550-acre campus. As this was the first building on the campus, it was imperative that the spatial arrangement created a campus within the building. The main public spaces act just like a campus; indoor and outdoor space flow seamlessly together and provide multiple nodes for study or social interaction. The concept of a centralized support zone for science, labs and classrooms supported by faculty emerged. A color palette of charcoal, terra cotta and wine is bold, unexpected and youthful. Concrete floors, slate and carpeting accent the bold color choices and compliment a light filled, 2-story lobby. To break up the long corridors, the ceiling vacillates between an open, wine-color painted space to a drop-down ceiling with light colors. This adds an industrial flair that complements the overall look and feel of the building. CSD provided architecture, interior design and FFE selection.
