College of William and Mary
Alan B. Miller Hall is home to the college’s undergraduate, graduate, and executive education programs and houses instructional spaces, a café, meeting rooms, administrative offices, faculty office space, and related support spaces. While the exterior of the building is compatible with the historic nature of the campus, the interior of the building reflects a timeless design that enhances the development of a strong sense of community within the students, faculty and staff.
The classrooms, offices, and common areas feature advanced information technology and include distribution systems, which will facilitate updates and/or modifications to the building to meet evolving technology cycles. Particular attention was given to soundproofing of rooms and offices to promote privacy, which becomes critical in faculty offices to promote a place for uninterrupted study, reflection, and innovative thinking. Classrooms were designed within a “box” with standard dimensions with standard power and communication services that enable them to be easily renovated over several technology/pedogology cycles.
This project earned LEED Gold with an emphasis on durable, low-maintenance, and sustainable materials.
