UC Berkeley Lower Sproul Redevelopment

Berkeley, California
United States

This renovation unveils a welcoming and bright plaza filled with transparency and an abundance of light. The program included a replacement of the existing Eshleman Hall, renovations and additions to Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union, the plaza decks, and minor renovations to Cesar Chavez Student Center and Anthony Hall.

Designed to take advantage of natural light, the new Eshleman Hall relies on natural ventilation and daylighting, minimizing the need for mechanical systems. Energy use, especially for lighting and computers, was a big challenge as the intention is to encourage round-the-clock use of the complex.
