PLANNING AND DESIGN FOR OVER 15 YEARS

studioINSITE has served Colorado College for many years to establish and the implement their vision, beginning with a Long Range Development Plan, and progressing through design of the Science Center, Arts Center, and the Palmer Quadrangle landscape updates.


PRESERVING THE HISTORIC CAMPUS CHARACTER

Wayfinding and lighting guidelines led to the installation of campus standard light fixtures and wayfinding signage throughout the Quad. Improvements extended to upgrade the entries at two of the surrounding buildings - Cutler Hall and Shove Memorial Chapel. Low walls were erected that utilized stone matching that of the historic buildings so that they appear to be part of the original structure.
