SAXBE AUDITORIUM

FRESH AESTHETIC

Saxbe Auditorium is located within Drinko Hall, which houses the Michael E. Moritz College of Law. The renovation focuses on lighting application and new seating to bring a fresh aesthetic and improve functionality for the student body who hold regular meetings there. Acoustical ceiling treatments will provide both a better setting for lectures and a subtle decorative finish, designed to mirror the modern pattern of the wood mid-century wall installation.

The design team is also tasked with re-working the stage and floor to meet ADA accessibility standards. The result will foster inclusive collaboration among the students and speakers who use the space.
