Alexia Hall / Founders Hall – Alverno College

Milwaukee, WI

Formerly the Liberal Arts Building, Founders Hall underwent extensive remodeling to accommodate a growing student population and changes in how students learn. Work included the renovation and expansion of the La Verna Commons to provide more dining options, an enlarged seating area, and a small outdoor plaza. The Library was also renovated and updated, several offices were consolidated, and meeting rooms and classrooms were added, along with a new coffee shop.

Alexia Hall developed a formerly unused site area to connect two existing buildings and add 39,000 square feet of new program space to the Alverno Campus. The ground floor added new art
classrooms, a dance studio, and new art gallery. The first floor also includes a high-fidelity nursing simulation and clinical nursing skills lab for the JoAnn McGrath School of Nursing. The second floor features six new classrooms with active learning technologies, meeting and breakout rooms and ample student study space.

Completed in 2015.
