SUNY Albany Massry Center for Business

Albany, New York
United States

Featuring a three-story lobby, café, and social spaces, the building serves as the communal student “living room”. The open design allows for visual connection between the multiple levels and the daylighted public spaces. This sense of transparency is enhanced by the glass-fronted seminar rooms, offices, trading room, and classrooms. Daylight permeates the lowest level through the use of a sunken garden. HLB provided daylighting and solar analysis to enhance views, connection with nature and daylight harvesting in this primarily overcast climate. Particular attention was given to designing a lighting control system that captured energy savings from daylight harvesting, multiple-level and-scene strategies, with an easy to use interface.
