Founders Hall is a mixed-use building in the heart of the University of Arkansas campus, consisting of street-level retail, dining and 214 beds for university housing. Core Architects worked with a team of architects and engineers for the design and coordinated closely with the construction manager during construction. The exterior design and materials used on the building help to contextualize it into the McIlroy Hill district of campus, integrating it with the collegiate Gothic architecture of Gregson Hall and Gibson Hall. The dining area provides an expansion to Brough Commons, while other common areas provide spaces for gathering, studying, and socializing.
The Global Campus provides classroom, office, lounge and meeting space for the University of Arkansas at an off-campus location. Located in the World Trade Center building, the space allows for University teaching in a non-traditional educational environment. Core worked closely with the Dean and Associate Provost of Continuing Education and Academic Outreach to provide the University with a successful build-out on a very tight schedule.
Core Architects completed the design of two prototype classrooms to be used for a campus-wide modernization. The project will modernize classroom finishes, furniture, and layout and bring the next generation of technology to university academic space. This was accomplished through coordination with vendors, suppliers, the Facilities Management Campus Planning Team and a broad membership of the academic community.
