George Karnoutsos Arts & Science Hall

New Jersey City University

Optimizing a Pivotal Site


Karnoustsos Hall occupies a pivotal position at NJCU physically and programmatically and connects students and faculty with each other as they traverse the campus. The project commenced with a master plan and conceptual alternatives that showed how various arts and science components would be integrated with the adjoining Fries Hall, shape the building and define a new quadrangle with the student center. A two-story colonnade along the south side  of the building reinforces a natural campus pathway from Hepburn Hall and the original campus to the student center. The distinctive entrance tower on the corner creates a new visual focus and is similar in height to the Collegiate Gothic campanile of the original campus.
