Denver, CO (April 8, 2014) – SLATERPAULL Architects announces that it has completed the renovation of Margery Reed Hall on the University of Denver (DU) campus. The 34,000 square foot building, located at the corner of University Boulevard and Evans Avenue in Denver, officially re-opens today. The building was originally designed by well-known Pennsylvania architect Charles Z. Klauder and constructed in 1929. The $8 million renovation was designed to meet the growing needs and expanding programs at DU’s Daniels College of Business.
The newly renovated facility will house 11 new, state-of-the-art classrooms, nine student study/gathering spaces, a 20-seat board room and faculty and staff office suites. The project also includes a major renovation of the Reiman Theater, including the restoration of the historic Shakespearean mural, which serves as the centerpiece of the 169-seat venue.
“We were very excited to be involved in the renovation of Margery Reed Hall and to collaborate with the University of Denver on this prominent building,” says Gary Petri, principal, SLATERPAULL Architects. “Of key importance on this project was respecting the character of the original architecture of the building, designed by one of the most famous early 20th century college and university architects, Klauder and Day from Philadelphia, while delivering a premier learning and teaching environment for DU students and faculty.”
