UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT BOULDER
Eaton humanities building and woodbury hall renovation
The Humanities Building on the corner of the Historic Norlin Quadrangle comprises classrooms and offices. All the classrooms are equipped for multi-media presentations and electronic telecommunications. In addition to the offices for faculty, teaching and program assistants, the departments include administrative offices, conference rooms, and a reading room. A “living room & front porch” were an important piece of the design to foster collaborative meeting spaces as well as a sense of community.
The Historic Woodbury Hall was renovated to house offices for Undergraduate Academic Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences Student Academic Affairs. Originally a men’s dorm, Historic Woodbury Hall is connected with a limestone link (elevator and stairs) to the Eaton Humanities Building, which houses administration and advisors' offices, reception areas, conference rooms, records storage, and other support spaces. Renovation included complete reconfiguration of the building layout, and the gut/remodel of the mechanical, electrical, and fire systems.
