Willard and DiLoreto Halls built originally in 1957 and 1966, have a combined area of approximately 105,000 GSF. Extensive programming was required at the start of the project to prepare a complete reallocation of space across all departments with a significant new program defined as One-Stop Student Services.  This project connects, upgrades and expands Willard and DiLoreto Halls. Approximately 35,000 sq. ft. of new construction has been added between, creating a commons, connecting the buildings. The new commons will serve as the heart of the new complex.

TSKP STUDIO’s design transforms both the aesthetics and the energy efficiency of the two buildings. Replacing the bands of windows, adding a new sloped metal roof and a glass wall into a large-scale portico complements the scale and architectural vocabulary of the adjacent Davidson Hall. A strategy for adding insulation throughout the building envelope along with energy efficient windows and doors and the prevalence of natural light provides a dramatic improvement to energy conservation and building performance. TSKP STUDIO is the lead design firm with Tecton Architects serving as Associate Architect.
