Because the office suite would be the main corridor for public use, a durable wall surface that had the appearance of a stained stucco texture was used.
In addition, the design program required conference centers that were equipped with simple conference tables while supporting superior teleconferencing and media equipment. In order to achieve this goal, a conference table was built that incorporates equipment such as data lines and microphones hidden within the table. The office suite showcases the school’s continued commitment to students, technology and the future of medicine.
