Located in Bradley Hall, this former theatre was converted into an office and research space for visual perception and cognitive science. Like many turn of the last century buildings, it offered large windows facing west, cast in place concrete columns with mushroom capitals and nearly 13 foot ceilings. The design solution addressing specific research requirements used the perimeter for offices and huddle rooms while the center area took advantage of the abundant natural light and provided a mix of lounge and bar height seating. A floating ceiling was installed over the conference table to define the space and address sound. Warm tones and light fixtures appropriate for the industrial design concept complimented the space.
