Honors Hall, Lycoming College

Williamsport, PA

This adaptive reuse project transformed a condemned building into a beautiful multi-use cultural resource. In addition to the main recital hall, the building also houses offices for the Honors Program, Campus Ministry and Community Services, a student lounge and a meditation chapel. Working entirely within the existing building envelope, the dramatic transformation incorporates pieces of the college’s history. The recital hall features extensive interior detailing and casework, with environmentally friendly cork flooring.

This non-profit medical provider was awarded a Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law for New Yorkers, or HEAL, NY grant to build a new 288-bed facility to provide nursing care and assisted living. The building layout for the 168-bed skilled nursing center allows visitors and staff to directly access any neighborhood without walking through other units. Resident social spaces, including living rooms, activity rooms, parlors and dining rooms, are connected and open to the corridor. Resident rooms are designed to accommodate dining and allow for social interactions with other residents, staff and visitors.
