Using the Acoustical ceiling information and having a manufacturer able to provide multiple finishes (single source) the transition to the equally complex acoustical wood veneer wall panels was seamless both in the design as well as the production stages. The design had one manufacturer able to provide solutions, details and integration for the entire space including millwork color matching.

The Chazen Museum of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently celebrated 41 years with the opening of a $43 million, 81,000 square-foot addition. A marvel of architecture and design, the addition more than doubled previous gallery capacity, increased public access to collections and added space for events. Many of these events will be hosted in a new lobby, designed to increase visibility and visual appeal, with a large, two-story glass volume that opens onto a courtyard near major campus walkways.
