Gillette College | Gillette, Wyoming
The multifaceted building Malone Belton Abel designed to house the new Gillette College campus is centered around a central two-story atrium/commons area which creates a sense of community and comfort, especially during the cold winter months.
These advantages of a single building are found in a facility as full of variation and individual “places” as a much larger college campus. With varying roof lines and angles, the college building appears as a series of structures, and will be easy to expand. The colors of the brick and block exterior reflect the surrounding countryside.
The college offers both a traditional college curriculum and specific vocational training relevant to the local community and economy. Well-equipped laboratories support classes in chemistry, biology, geology, physics, electricity and geography, for the nursing, science and mining programs offered. The information technology systems used in every classroom and lab are based upon prototypes at Stanford University.
Our firm provided complete interior design services and furniture selection for the campus building, which is further described in the Interior Design Projects.
