Cincinnati Art Museum



Natural light and views at critical focal points emphasize major paths in the museum, allowing visitors to easily guide themselves and control their experience.


Project Type: Museum
Client: Cincinnati Art Museum
Square feet: 18,000 SF
Construction Cost: $4,500,000

KZF Design served as architect and engineer for an 18,000 SF renovation of the historic museum’s south section, home to its Cincinnati Art Collection which highlights the rich art history of the city. The influence of the project extends beyond its physical boundaries to enhance the museum as a whole. Use of natural light at critical points provides important visual relief and opens the museum literally and symbolically to the community it serves. The renovation also encompassed a new 6,000 SF garden café which stretches into a redesigned courtyard.
