LMN Architects’ New Business School at the University of Washington 

The University of Washington has hired Seattle based LMN Architects to design a trio of buildings to replace its existing business school, Balmer Hall, built in the late 1960s. That building, which will be razed to make room for the new structure, is considered by many to be “the ugliest building on campus”. And, School officials say the old building has hurt them in recruiting faculty and students. The new glass, brick and steel building by LMN will be accomplished in two phases. Phase 1 calls for two classroom and office buildings linked together by a central atrium which will add 120,000 gross square feet of space to the School’s facilities. Phase II is conceived as an addition to Phase 1. It will add 60,000 gross square feet of space and house additional tiered u-shaped classrooms, a large multi-purpose meeting and dining room, office space for research centers and staff and program administrative offices. Phase 1 will be completed in 2010. Phase II is planned for completion in 2012.
