University of Cincinnati / Rieveschl Hall Science Renovation 5 & 6
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
Scope: Architecture, Interior Design
Size: 52,000 SF
Phases 5&6 includes the renovation of 52,000 SF for chemistry and biology research laboratories, offices, conference rooms and informal meeting areas. During the programming phase it was essential to clearly define the current and future teaching and research needs, to plan for the flexibility and adaptability required over time, and to better determine the scope of the renovation within the given budget.
Spaces included teaching spaces, research laboratories, offices, conference rooms, and informal meeting areas. The teaching labs were moved into smaller class sizes of 24 with more flexible systems to allow for group work and hands-on learning. The research labs were designed as larger adaptive spaces with support labs to attract new researchers, allow for research changes and encourage collaboration. Student spaces throughout the project encourage students to study in groups or on their own.
