LSU Barnes Ogden Art + Design Complex | AOS Interior Environments
Designed by Holly & smith Architects, the newly renovated LSU Barnes Ogden Art & Design Complex—formerly known as the Studio Arts Building—transforms the historic structure into a world-class education facility. Due to its listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the design team meticulously adhered to preserving the building's original features and charm. Originally constructed between 1923-1924 and known as the Old Engineering Shops, the building was the first of several structures as part of lSU's original master plan. In addition to providing necessary and updated improvements, the design team also reorganized the building's interior to better serve the needs of the school. The facility now houses modernized studios for foundational art programs, ceramics, print making, and sculpture, as well as office spaces and art galleries for the LSU College of Art + Design.

LSU Barnes Ogden Art + Design Complex

Designed by Holly & smith Architects, the newly renovated LSU Barnes Ogden Art & Design Complex—formerly known as the Studio Arts Building—transforms the historic structure into a world-class education facility. Due to its listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the design team meticulously adhered to preserving the building’s original features and charm. Originally constructed between 1923-1924 and known as the Old Engineering Shops, the building was the first of several structures as part of lSU’s original master plan. In addition to providing necessary and updated improvements, the design team also reorganized the building’s interior to better serve the needs of the school. The facility now houses modernized studios for foundational art programs, ceramics, print making, and sculpture, as well as office spaces and art galleries for the LSU College of Art + Design.

The renovation is expected to significantly bolster the school’s recruitment efforts, attracting more exceptionally talented students and faculty. It will also extend the building’s usability during the summer months, enabling continuing education opportunities and increased access to essential facilities for students. As a result, the renovated complex serves as a gateway to the historic part of the campus, bridging the old and new areas. This transformation not only enhances accessibility to the LSU Sculpture Quad but also promotes the arts within the broader community, reflecting the college’s commitment to fostering creativity and engagement beyond its walls.
