St. John's College Levan Hall

Santa Fe, NM

The new Betty and Norman Levan Hall houses the College’s two graduate programs, as well as classrooms, faculty offices, a multi-purpose faculty meeting room, and a student common space. The 500-seat Lecture Hall allows the student body and faculty to meet in one place, as well as allow the community to attend lectures, concerts and films. A new Art Gallery also serves as both a pre-function space for the Lecture Hall and as a connector between the Fine Arts Building and Meem Library. The new building defines and enhances a previously under-utilized courtyard, the Meem Placita. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
