In partnership with Ratio Architects, Rowland Design provided interior finish and furniture design for the phased renovation of the Butler University’s historic Hinkle Fieldhouse.  The essential goal of the project was to provide student athletes, staff and guests with modern amenities while maintaining the appeal of the existing period building.

Aesthetics for an important space named the Wildman Room were inspired by a 1928 yearbook, The Drift, which was the year the Fieldhouse was completed.  Notable features of the space include rich wood paneling, an Art-Deco bar along with a hand painted 1920’s style mural depicting life and times at the university.  A host of additional spaces throughout the building were also reconfigured and designed.

Awards:

Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration for the preservation of Hinkle Fieldhouse

The goal of this collaborative project is to enhance student learning and engagement at the library.  The long wall along the window that once held 68 isolated, stationary study carrels incorporates design components reflective of the study habits and methods of today’s student. Research has shown that spaces that encourage collaboration and active participation increase the likelihood that learners will retain and be able to apply information later.

By using green and renewable materials and by drawing on natural themes in its design, the Learning Spaces project also is an expression of the campus commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.

Project completed in affiliation with CSO Architects, Maregatti Interiors and RJE Business Interiors.
