Lecture Hall, Room 4106: Renovations

Seattle Central College (SCC) requested our expertise to provide comprehensive renovations to Room 4106, a lecture hall located in the Broadway Edison Building. The team focused on creating a design that would resonate with millennial aspirations, provide an efficient use of space, improve accessibility, and offer the latest in audio-visual technology. The original lecture hall consisted of continuous rows of desks with fixed seating and side aisles, prohibiting flow and movement. The renovations to the hall included 2 center aisles, allowing the presenter access to the seating areas while providing improved instructional flexibility.

Founded in 1966, SCC was the first community college in Seattle. Today it remains a leading state college located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and is 1 of 3 colleges, which make up the Seattle Colleges District.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Managed all stakeholder communication.
  • Removed front projection screen with standard whiteboards.
  • Designed and installed a new projection wall with continuous glass panels, including glass writing boards and glass projection panels. All installed glass panels are writable.
  • Removed suspended ceiling and painted ceiling plenum and structure above Lecture Hall black to create a sense of volume.
  • Installed suspended acoustical clouds to baffle noise and provide formality to the space.
