The DHi offices are a metaphor for DHi's partnership with the humanities: housed within the traditional Beaux-Arts shell of Hamilton College's former library in Christian Johnson Hall, on the main quad of the campus, is a state of the art collaboratory employing the latest in multimedia digital hardware and software. The collaboratory space with its reading room "ambulatory" implies this history: a "fragment" from Christian Johnson Halls original Collegiate Gothic plan is now borrowed and re-purposed for the twenty-first century. The DHi trans-disciplinary incubator is showcased to the Hamilton community immediately upon entering the CJ lobby in a portion of the former Emerson Gallery. The design team included three professional architecture firms: HMC Architects of Los Angeles and San Francisco, rhenDESIGN of Rochester, NY, and Paul Richard Foote Architectural Design of Seneca Falls, NY (with six design partners, including Nieves).
