, is a former storage warehouse
of the Syracuse-based Dunk and Bright Furniture Company. It was purchased in 2005

million. The renovation was designed by Syracuse alumnus Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Mayner Architects
. It currently houses the university's School of Architecture

After the School of Architecture returns to the Main Campus in the fall of 2008, the facility will house other SU departments and programs.

' communications and advertising design programs are headquartered in the building. The design firm that developed the renovation was recently honored for their work on the Warehouse.
The ground floor--housing a cafe, reading room, community classrooms & work spaces, a community exhibition space and an international contemporary art gallery--is the most public area in the warehouse. The first floor is home to the School of Architecture's main offices, a large lecture space and a small bookstore. Floor two is a climate-controlled storage space for the SU library. The third floor is home to the Visual and Performing Art's Advertising Design and Communications Design programs, with floors four through seven used for the School of Architecture, in the form of offices, classrooms, and studio space. Part of Warehouse's basement contains a model shop, laser cutters, spray booths, and a "dirty room" for messy projects.
