NUTHATCH HOLLOW LIVING BUILDING. BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY

Flexible lab arrangements anticipate changing approaches to lab work and instruction in the future. The Living Building Challenge is one of the most aspirational and rigorous building standards in the world today with only 13 buildings so far achieving full certification.

Nuthatch Hollow is an environmental learning and research site near the Binghamton University campus in Binghamton, New York. The purpose of this project is to design and construct a Living Building Challenge Certified environmental classroom and research facility on the grounds of Nuthatch Hollow. The facility, about 2,000 to 2,500 square feet in size, will act as a hub for environmental classes and research within the broader Nuthatch preserve. At a symbolic level, the building will act as a physical manifestation of Binghamton University’s core values and mission, especially as they relate to preparing students to live effectively in a time of change and helping them actively create a more sustainable, resilient world.
