Originally built to house the University of Pennsylvania’s Dental School, historic Hayden was later renovated to accommodate School of Arts and Sciences programs, as well as faculty offices for the Engineering department. This project consisted of renovations to four floors of this academic building’s East Wing to upgrade learning laboratory environments and offices for Penn’s Geology programs. W+CO designed extensive improvements including new space partitioning, finishes, lighting, lab specialty equipment and casework, and extensive mechanical upgrades. All spaces respect the historic character of the building while providing contemporary, high-tech learning environments in well-lit and functional classrooms and laboratories.
