ICA: Creative Writing House

Interlochen Center for the Arts
Creative Writing House
Interlochen, Michigan
Size: 15,000 SF

The Creative Writing Building on the wooded campus of Interlochen Center for the Arts, emulates the combination of form, function and contextual congruity with the existing campus environment. The design borrows features from the original campus buildings, but incorporates an ideal educational design to support today’s technologically sophisticated learning environment.
The large open interior acts as a living room for the students in the writing program, providing a place for them to gather and share ideas during the long winter months. The warm materials and casual atmosphere make this building ideal for the collaborative writing process emphasized across all the programs at Interlochen.
