Project Spotlight: DU Centennial Halls & Towers

by Macy Andre on December 14, 2017

Throwback Thursday- Higher Ed Renovation

Designing a space for a specific demographic can pose unique challenges. DU Centennial Halls & Towers were meant to be a place for young minds to thrive, and throughout time the design of these spaces needed an update. While the existing space had potential, the use of the lobby and common rooms were out of date and no longer functioning as they once did.

With the combination of our architecture team and our mechanical and electrical engineers, EVstudio was able to provide DU with a cohesive design package to give the space a new life.  Without altering the exterior of the building, interior elements change the layout of the existing spaces, and new light fixtures allow the atmosphere to be more uplifting.

Centennial Halls DU_101tWhat was once a dreary old brick dormitory was painlessly transformed into a place where students can hang out, study, and interact with one another between classes. These dated buildings are all around, and instead of tearing them down it’s much more cost effective to give their interiors a little TLC. EVstudio was happy to work with DU and provide our services to create something the students would get more out of.
