Built in 1970, this 13,562-SF facility was originally the home of Ivan Allen office supply and interior design firm. Acquired by SCAD in 2001 and renovated in 2010, Fahm Hall now houses the jewelry department, as well as the SCADlab, which offers students 3D printers and large-format photo printers for special projects and regular use. The conversion consisted of transitioning the existing facility into classrooms, meeting spaces, studios, and an art gallery and Collaborative Learning Center that acts as a catalyst for joint ventures between the University and local businesses. Special consideration was taken not to disturb current occupants during the impressive 30-day construction process.
