Shattuck Hall, originally built in 1914 as Shattuck Elementary School, was transformed into a dynamic facility in 2010. Home to PSU’s Department of Architecture and Public Safety Office, the building encompasses a multi-level open floor plan, naturally lit studios, a roof top gallery, digital lab, and extensive materials lab for model-making, woodworking, metalworking, foundry and digital fabrication. From the architect and contractor to the mechanical and electrical engineers, the project team diligently pursued an integrated design process to make Shattuck Hall a model for green building renovation.

Key strategies include: refurbished operable windows that retain character and beauty while supplying abundant daylight and outside air; an integrated radiant heating and cooling ceiling panel system, acoustical absorption and reflection of indirect lighting; refurbished light wells that provide daylight to formerly dark interior spaces; and daylight and occupancy sensors ensure lighting is only used when needed.
