Cincinnati Art Museum

Construction Cost

Square Feet
18,000 SF

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.
