CCA Graduate Studios

A band of lightness wraps this 10,000 square foot, wood-framed warehouse, providing new facilities for the growing Graduate Studies Program at the California College of the Arts. Along with seismic and accessibility upgrades to the building, its exterior is entirely re-clad in corrugated cement-board with a continuous clerestory of corrugated twin-wall polycarbonate. A mobile shipping container in the exterior courtyard houses new prefabricated restrooms, opening up the interior space for thirty-two individual light-filled artist studios.
