Loyola Law School - Founders Hall Renovation Project Size: 24,500 SF
Berliner Architects began working with Loyola Law School on the Founders Hall Renovation project with a series of programming exercises. Which included a classroom utilization study for the entire campus. The project includes Loyola Law School's administration, Student Affairs, Fiscal Affairs, Career Development, IT and Planning Departments.
The brick building from the 1950's is being renovated to reflect contemporary aesthetics of corporate offices, providing a professional environment which is also warm and inviting for students, faculty, and staff. The new interconnecting stairs, centrally located in the building, allow a more welcoming means of access for clients visiting the second floor. Slight angels are introduced intermittently in an otherwise orthogonal building as a nod to architect Frank Gehry's prolific influence on the campus.
