The 3-story interior renovation of the classroom building to provide modern functionality and an enlivened setting for new classrooms, lounges, and faculty offices.
Madeleva Hall was constructed in 1966 and had not undergone any significant updates. Housing the Departments of Mathematics and Education, the classroom and faculty spaces were outdated and did not facilitate creative learning or interaction between faculty and students.
An interactive workshop process among administration, faculty, students, and Arkos Design was successful in identifying the needs for the future and their desire for a modern, interactive environment. The final design incorporated student common spaces on every floor, updated and flexible classrooms, and faculty offices that encourage interaction and incorporation of Sister Madeleva’s poetry and philosophies within the design.
This 3-story interior renovation was completed in two phases to allow a continuation of faculty use and teaching environments during construction.
- Student common spaces integrated throughout
- Updated classrooms and faculty offices
- Campus archive library
- Incorporated sustainable materials and recycled/reused existing materials
