Campbell Hall Renovation
Campbell Hall, a 1951 multi-story concrete and masonry building, is a unique mix of Midcentury Modern massing and fenestration with Collegiate Gothic detailing. LAS has begun work on the full renovation of Campbell Hall to transform it from a science building into a one-of-a-kind living and learning facility. The programming effort is campus-wide, engaging students, faculty, staff, and administrators to coalesce a vision for this building as a 24:7 hub. Initial ideas include co-locating “student learning centers” inside of the building, which would combine student tutoring with student achievement centers within a relaxed and supportive environment.
The remainder of the spaces will house offices, classrooms, and “loft-like” student residential units within integrated floor plans that will allow students to interact with faculty in both formal and informal settings.
The interior aesthetics will build upon the character of the existing building, by salvaging some of the remaining historic features, and by embracing the pre-existing “industrial” and “loft-like” character of the exposed concrete structure.
Agnes Scott was an early adopter of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, and as such, the project has high aspirations for incorporating innovative sustainable technologies and LEED strategies.
