Selected by Bridgewater State University as their architectural ‘House Doctor,’ Habeeb & Associates Architects performed a variety of services on Hunt Hall, which at the time was housing general classrooms and office space.


The new directive and program for Hunt Hall specified the complete design and detail for a new 3,200 sq. ft. adjacent addition, to house 2D classroom and 3D metal, wood and sculpture areas. The project also included renovating 12,000 sq. ft. of existing space into art-focused classrooms, a photography lab, studio and darkroom facility, and student commons. The existing administrative office was reconfigured to better suit the needs of staff.


The project included an upgrade of the entire building envelope with all new systems and a curtain wall design with a low slope roof. The mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work was extensive and included a new dust collection and ventilation system (with re-circulating capability) for the 3D shop, welding, sanding and paint areas. New HVAC systems included high efficiency condensing boilers, Direct Digital Control (DDC) Systems and low-velocity air distribution systems.
