UCONN Student Union – Storrs, CT.
This project was an unusual conversion of the original outdated student gathering space done in two phases. A new “Main Street” was added to the back of the building by constructing a parallel building and connecting them with atrium skylight running the full length of the buildings bringing brilliant sunshine into the core of the building. The back of the old building was opened up and extensive use of interior glazing was used to tie the old area into the new facility. New curtain walls and glazed entry areas open the gathering space to the core of the campus.
