Point Park University, Renovations to Academic Hall

With the established goal of making its presence more visible to its neighbors in downtown Pittsburgh, Point Park University commissioned WTW to design a renovation to its main building, Academic Hall. The transformation of the lower two floors into a glass-enclosed atrium offers passers-by a view of student lounges on two floors linked by a thirty-foot-long staircase.

The project showcases the life and vibrancy of the university by making internal pedestrian movement and activity visible to the public. The limestone-clad exterior, large windows, and dramatic interior space highlight the college’s committment to improving all of its facilities.
