The new 36,000-square foot Science Complex, connected to the existing 70,000-square foot Albertus Magnus Hall at Providence College creates a new front entrance for the teaching and research facility, which is part of a $50 million multi-phased project, an initiative of the Providence College Campus Transformation Project, contained within three adjoining buildings. The Science Complex houses state-of-the-art spaces for the Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Psychology, and Engineering-Physics-Systems Departments.
The building’s large expanse of curtain wall lends the modern and open interior spaces a beautiful background of exterior focal points - campus walkways and gardens, and adjacent structures. The palette of interior colors and materials defines the science disciplines and aids in way finding. This color intent is captured in flooring pattern designs, wall surface accents, bright mechanical duct colors in open plenum ceilings, and in furniture finishes and upholstery.
