Willamette University hired AC + Co to renovate Eaton Hall’s fourth floor attic into 7,500 s.f. of modern office, classroom and meeting space. The eight new offices were arranged so that the department of Rhetoric and Media Studies faculty are adjacent to the department of Anthropology faculty, creating departmental identity for the students that was otherwise lost when the offices were originally spread out amidst Smullin Hall. Within the heart of the new facility is a brand new media lab, combining the latest in technology for the students to take learning to new levels. Two classrooms are equipped with mobile laptop workstations, wireless networking and digital video projection. A meeting room was designed to accommodate small, seminar-style classes. The renovation design also allowed room for a student/faculty lounge.
