William Pitt Union-Third Floor Renovation, University of Pittsburgh
Approximately 10,000 sf of the Union was designated for this project. WTW Architects was selected to plan and design the new facility.
Study spaces include a collaborative study area for small groups, a quiet study room for individual study efforts, and a pocket lounge for casual study. The exercise center features several areas with different levels of fitness activity including cardio and strength training, spinning, aerobics, yoga, and other stress reduction programs. Meditation spaces include a center for coordinated stress-related activities as well as a quiet reflection space for up to 45 persons.
The project also includes a meeting space for group discussions and workshops. The collective combination of all these components transformed the third floor of the William Pitt Union into a new dimension for student life.
