OSU: Kearney Hall

Apperson Hall was converted into Kearney Hall, a 31,000sf College of Engineering building on the Oregon State University campus. It contains an auditorium, classrooms, student offices, and a multi-use teaching laboratory. The building interior was completely reconstructed within the 108 year-old Richardson Romanesque stone façade. The interior is outfitted with wood milled from the previous building structure. There are also areas where the structure and equipment are visible to students to compliment classroom instruction.
