Project Details: The stunning architecture of University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning created a unique backdrop for this space. Workscape and Construkt teamed with POH Architects to provide both furniture and DIRTT that would modernize the 22nd and 23rd floors of one of the oldest structures on the Pitt campus. For example, we used colorful and modern ancillary furniture to create public areas that students are now able to utilize in-between classes and the glass DIRTT walls helped to boost the building’s little natural light. Using DIRTT instead of traditional construction also helped to keep the project timeline on track. The updates create a unique juxtaposition of new furniture and old architecture.
