Glass atrium to cap off renovation of Johns Hopkins landmark building 

Gilman Hall, the first major academic building at Johns Hopkins Baltimore, Maryland campus and the hub of student life will undergo a transformative renovation by New York architects Kliment Halsband. The centerpiece of the $73 million project, which is to begin construction in the spring, is the addition of a three-storey enclosed glass atrium.

The red brick exterior of the historic Georgian building will remain untouched while the interiors of the 92 year old structure will be completely gutted to increase the useable space for academic programs, bring the humanities programs together and make the building more sustainable. The architects plan to remove and replace all of the interior walls, restore high ceilings to many rooms that previously had them, and update the building's energy systems with high-efficiency components. The atrium will house the university's archaeological collection, a café ,and serve as a gathering space for students.

The building, which is anticipated to open in 2010, is expected to achieve a LEED Silver certification from the United States Green Building Council.
