Columbia University, Chandler Hall

Spacesmith conducted a feasibility study to re-purpose a former chemistry library in Chandler Hall for use as either a new classroom or innovation hub for Columbia University. The intention was to take an underutilized space of roughly 6,800 sf and convert it into vibrant, state-of-the-art classrooms or an innovation hub.

The study also included the improvement of ADA access to the building. The University chose the classroom option, which will be completed by Spring semester of 2019, and includes four classrooms, facility offices, a wellness room, and support spaces over two floors.
