San Francisco State University’s Fine Arts Museum was a project that was delivered with a strong collaboration between the teaching staff, facilities management, contractor, and designers from initial programming to construction completion. Working with a finite budget, a balance between security, environmental controls, and aesthetics was needed for the artifacts that would be on display in this facility. Another part of the challenge of the design was converting an instructional dance studio into a space that would invite members of the general public to attend. To further the Museum Program that was previously non-existent in the Fine Arts Building, a Print Room/Photography Room was redesigned to house the Museum’s collections as well as provide an instructional space on how to preserve items of historic value. It is with this design and construction that the Fine Arts Building now welcomes the Museum Program at San Francisco State University.
