Architecture, Planning & Interior Design for College & Universities

columbia university cerc interior design renovation project by Gran Kriegel Architects

Gran Kriegel’s reputation as an expert architecture, design, and planning firm in the realm of education expands from k-12 schools  all the way through colleges and universities. Our educational projects range from new designs and construction to adaptive reuse retrofits, renovations, master planning, feasibility studies, and more. We’ve completed work for numerous higher education institutions, including Columbia University, the US Coast Guard Academy, Bank Street College of Education, SUNY, and CUNY.

Each education project integrates technology with traditional teaching methods, and our designs address educational institutions’ need for spaces that can serve multiple and diverse uses.  Whatever the program, site, or budget — whether new buildings, additions, or renovations and retrofits —our solutions balance the need for an environment that encourages learning with constraints that are physical, financial, or aesthetic.
