Located adjacent to Savannah’s Port in an industrial district, Alexander Hall was historically a modest brick warehouse building used for port related shipping. The building was renovated and reimagined to accommodate SCAD’s ceramics and photography programs. The interior renovation included a multitude of gallery spaces, classrooms, ceramics labs, photography dark rooms, and personal student studios spaces. The building systems were fully replaced with high-efficiency HVAC and lighting systems. The exterior remained in its original configuration, but was updated with contemporary details and railings and an existing fire stair was re-clad with a Shou Sugi Ban wood cladding system as a statement accent.
