The solution was to create a spacious and comfortable space that was aesthetically pleasing and could fit on a rare empty corner lot, directly across the street from the Business School. The complex is comprised of (22) 14’ x 50 modules to to take full advantage of the lot available. Clear span beams make rest a top columns that are strategically placed to essentially be lost in the cubicles. Horizontal fiber cement siding was chosen by the University for the building exterior as an important element belnding with adjoining structures.
