Art Sanctuary at Bard College Annandale-on-Hudson, NY

The modest building, intended for contemplation, contains a collection of rooms that vary by shape, scale, and light for the display of permanently-installed works of art by women. Saddling the topography in a meadow, the architecture looks inward and outward to provide spaces of refuge from an active campus and the broader forces of life. The exterior is clad in local stone. All rooms benefit from natural light. The central space is shaped to host small quiet events and opens to a large terrace overlooking a pond.
