Adams Center for the Visual Arts is five times the size of the old Westmont Art Center and provides studio space, faculty offices, two general-use classrooms, a lecture hall with tiered seating, a computer graphics lab, a darkroom, and the Westmont Museum of Art. The center also features two gallery and art pavilions on top of a landscaped roof deck. Set into a hillside, Winter Hall for Science and Mathematics is home to offices, classrooms and laboratories. The building offers study lounges that open to a landscaped roof deck. SGH assisted the project team with the design of waterproofing and the building enclosure.
