College of Marin’s new Academic Center has transformed the entrance to the institution in Kentfield.
The design of the new building complex thoughtfully engages the three generations of existing buildings and the arboretum-like landscape, while creating a new sense of “campus.”
TLCD Architecture teamed with Design Architect Mark Cavagnero Associates to create a signature building at the corner of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and College Avenue.
“It was a privilege to work with Mark Cavagnero Associates and TLCD architects. Their collaborative design approach incorporated ideas and feedback from both the college and community members. We are proud that the Academic Center is the capstone project of the 2004 bond measure,” said Dr. David Wain Coon, College of Marin’s superintendent and president.
This is the last of the major projects in the Marin Community College District’s Measure C Bond Program. The Academic Center building was constructed at a cost of $20.7 million.
