University of Louisville Schneider Hall

Louisville, KY

Schneider Hall, on the University of Louisville’s Belknap campus, houses the Hite Art Institute and Galleries as well as the Art Library. The University hired Rowland Design as the project interior designer and project architect, with the goal of updating the furniture, finishes and lighting. Rowland created a new lighting scheme for the public spaces and galleries, using a combination of artificial and natural light. Light fixtures are easily adjustable and can be customized to each exhibit. Modern, durable furniture and finishes were selected to accommodate Schneider Hall’s many visitors, and improved space planning ensures the most efficient flow of people throughout each space.
