Washington University in St. Louis School of Law

Intuitive styling, clean lines and uncluttered arrangements aren’t just characteristics of contemporary design. Good modern design compliments a variety of more traditional styles, and our ongoing work with Washington University’s School of Law exemplifies this successful marriage of new and old.

Housed in Anheuser-Busch Hall, the largest building on a traditional Collegiate-Gothic campus, the School of Law has enlisted SPACE to renovate the interiors of the 15 year-old building. Led by Project Manager Elizabeth Kohl, the SPACE team has been meticulously updating the interiors floor by floor according to a multi-year master plan. SPACE renovated a balcony in the library’s elegant wood-paneled reading room to accommodate the donation of a sculpture. On the other end of the design spectrum, SPACE created a bright and contemporary online learning suite called 2tor in nearby Siegle Hall.

The team is now warming up the entire building with a new color palette, carpeting, furniture, and art selection. To supplemement new artwork, SPACE researched and designed historical interpretive panels that will be displayed in prominent high-traffic areas on the third floor, as well as panels celebrating the Wash U Alumni award winners, updated each year.
