Sullivan University, College of Pharmacy

Louisville, Kentucky

The project consisted of an 18,000-square-foot addition to be built onto an existing office building purchased by Sullivan University. Formerly known as the Nolan Building, the structure was a collection of a building and additions constructed between 1962 and 1969. The original structures were mid-century modern in style and constructed of beige brick ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCOST PER SQ FT$127.70FEATURED IN2009 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYRenovation white marble, black glass and aluminum window details. Other buildings on the Sullivan campus are of dark red/brown brick.

The addition is three stories and finished in the same dark red/brown brick as the adjacent buildings. The original beige brick was stained to match, and the marble was replaced with black glass similar to the new construction.

The college of pharmacy includes a student lounge; office and administrative spaces; two research labs; two 100-seat tiered auditoriums; a 5,000-square-foot, 50-student compounding lab; and a working pharmacy operated in conjunction with a national retail pharmacy chain.

The addition blends with the renovated building and honors the existing style while providing a new aesthetic for Sullivan University.
