Construction projects at the Rock Lititz campus began in 2013 when ground was broken for Studio 1. Since then, Pod 2, Pod 5 and the Hotel at Rock Lititz have all been conceived and built. Kollab' founder Tyler Kicera, previously the Head of Creative at TAIT, has been involved from the beginning on each. While at TAIT, Tyler provided architectural design consulting throughout the planning of Studio 1, Pod 2, Pod 5, the Hotel at Rock Lititz.
We've been involved in taking the Rock Lititz brand and developing a material pallet that is used throughout the campus. The foundation of this pallet is natural cedar and "Yes" yellow accents against black metal siding. While each project on the campus incorporates this pallet, each is differentiated by its own design vocabulary. Pod 2 entrances are defined by hanger-style awnings, on Pod 5 we used picture frame soffits and on the Studio 2 addition we will utilize upward slanted roofs with separate flat awnings.
Many of the materials found on campus stay true to themselves. Raw wood, steel and concrete are celebrated. When designing the campus signage, we opted to use Corten steel and carve the letters from it.
