Original plans for the Stuhr Building were designed by renowned architect, Edward Durrell Stone. During the initial construction many features were replaced by more affordable options. This restoration provided the design team an opportunity to reinstate elements of Stone’s original design that presented the clean, sleek, and open aesthetic he intended.
Alvine Engineering assisted the museum with master planning in 2008 and was part of the design team for the facility’s renovation. This project replaced the 2-story, 28,000-square-foot building’s HVAC, plumbing, power, lighting, fire suppression systems, and restored the building façade.
