Bates College, Chase Hall Renovation
The redesign of the underutilized “Bobcat Den” lounge created a lively and engaging space for student and faculty interaction. It transforms into a student pub at night, all the while recognizing the tradition inherent in the near 100 year history of the building.

The adjacent outdoor patio was renovated and reconnected to the campus quad, creating a campus gathering space for outdoor dining and entertainment.

The building’s lobby and gallery spaces were updated to create a welcoming “front parlor” for prospective students and other visitors.
