The KPF-redesigned building earned a 2021 Excellence Award in the Renovation category from The Society for College and University Planning.
The Stephen M. Rosenberg College of Law at the University of Kentucky features a renovation of the original 1965 building. KPF’s update includes a 26% area increase that offers new classrooms and collaboration spaces and increases access to natural light. Located next to historic Memorial Hall, the project uses metal, glass, and brick to blend with the University’s pallet and shifts the entrance to better relate to its neighbor.
Last month, the Rosenberg College of Law earned LEED Silver certification. The feat was accomplished through the reuse of the original structure and a management system that provides energy efficiency, along with a mechanical system comprised of hybrid fan coils.
Two other KPF projects have received SCUP awards. In 2019, NYU Shanghai was honored in the Excellence in Planning a New Campus category. In 2005, the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford was recognized for Excellence in Architecture Award and Excellence in Campus Architecture/Landscape Architecture. The SCUP Awards honor designs or plans for two and four-year colleges, universities, academic medical and research centers, and public or private institutions. Learn more here.
