Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
Dineen Hall anchors the university’s west campus expansion with a distinctive, state of the art building for the School of Law. A sky-lit central atrium at the main level introduces natural light through the building and visibly links the core elements: library, celebratory space, ceremonial courtroom. It is positioned beneath a green roof that provides a seasonal outdoor terrace space. The ceremonial courtroom is visible from inside and outside the building, signifying the law school’s inherent accessibility and transparency. Classrooms, offices, and cafe are carefully arranged with casual spaces for informal meetings interspersed throughout the facility. The masonry and glass exterior will be engineered to achieve LEED Gold certification. A 60-foot wide green swath, adjacent to the new building, will enhance the circulation spine from the West campus to the main campus.
