  • 2009 American School & University Outstanding Design


Schoenfeld Hall:  We transformed a drab, out-of-date dining space into a vibrant cafe and lounge.  The new space includes a servery, a wider variety of seating arrangements, new mailboxes, a recreation area and new furnishings for casual conversation.

Krenz Academic Center & Scheele Library:  The 12,000 sf Scheele Library, built in 1972, was a two-story structure with a 4,000 sf partial 3rd floor.  To create the new Krenz Academic Center without compromising the main quadrangle, we expanded the partial structure to become a complete third floor.   The new Center includes art galleries overlooking the campus, a terraced lecture hall, a Trustees' Board Room, digital instruction spaces and administrative offices.

Krenz Academic Center at Concordia College

The Krenz Center transformed the Sheele building from a library into an interdisciplinary place for the arts.  The OSilas Gallery in Krenz showcases the work of students and local artists in exhibits that are open to the public each year.  The north-facing glass façade of the gallery creates transparency so that activity within the space is visible to the entire college community.  A linear space along the north façade is well-suited for displaying smaller works of art, while larger pieces are displayed in the spacious interior gallery. ​


Krenz also features a terraced lecture room seating 82 people, a digital classroom for computer instruction, a television studio, and administrative offices.
