Domenici Building

New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM

The Domenici Building,  a complex renovation /addition project, visually and functionally transformed a nondescript existing theatre building into a cohesive, vibrant Conference Center.  Portions of the original 1960’s theatre were demolished and additions to the east and south create a light filled, multi-story, multi-functional atrium, and an exterior covered portal.  The existing building and the addition are connected by A long, vertical daylighting element floods the  interior spaces with natural light.  A technology package supports personal devices, video imaging, web streaming, and live video cameras for the presenter area and the audience.

LEED Silver Certification targeted.
