The center has two primary functions; it provides a state of the art learning and conference center and the other to provide a place of lodging for the campus and center.

The masonry is used as the architect's primary means of expression to articulate these differences in the site's needs.
The western facade is for the Conference Center, which creates an arcaded porch clad in a book-matched veneer cut limestone.
The booking matching occurs throughout every arch in both the saw marks, as well as the grain in the stone. Because of the tendencies of the soft stone to chip, extreme care had to be taken during installation to insure the entire arch would not have to be replaced. The light colored porch creates a cool relief from the hot western sun, as well as an elegant entrance for the building. The building uses portions of a darker brick blend to indicate divisions within the building's function.


In the same fashion, a single panel of Carmel Limestone is used to separate the conference center from the hotel as well as looking directly to downtown. Whether it is the traditional base of limestone with brick rising above, or various slight copings, and sills, they each speak to the ability of a sustainable and durable material (masonry) to connect the tradition of masonry on campus with a modern approach to architecture.
