Client: Centenary College
Project Name : Centenary College - Lackland Center
Location : Hackettstown, NJ
Architect : The Collaborative, Inc.
Description : The Lackland Center on Centenary College’s campus is a new 70,000 sq ft. dual-purpose performing arts and student center. It boasts two theaters (one versatile “black box” theater and a 485-seat performance theater) in addition to classrooms, administrative offices, and a dance studio. Space was also allocated for the campus radio and television studios. A complete dining facility with commercial kitchen, student-friendly serving complex, and large dining room comprise an entire wing of the building.
The exterior’s most prominent feature is the limestone rotunda, easily identifiable from aerial shots of the center. The domed roof is meant to mimic and complement, but not to overwhelm, the gold-leaf dome on the campus’s historic Administrative Building, built in 1867.
