Project Description

Columbia University Medical Center, CUMC Bard Hall

Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) hired 1100 Architect to design a comprehensive renovation of Bard Hall, the building, dating to 1928, that serves as the primary dormitory and campus center for CUMC students and affiliates. The renovation will transform the 20-story facility into a bustling center of student life by introducing new programming, enhancing circulation, and making considered and cost-effective changes to existing spaces. The design introduces several shared areas throughout the facility, including lounges, recreation rooms, libraries, media labs, and study rooms, all designed to promote the exchange of ideas and foster a sense of community in the building. By renovating outdated spaces, introducing several sustainability measures, and resolving a host of code and mechanical deficiencies, the renovation will also bring the aging building up to modern standards, transforming it into a safe, accessible, efficient, and contemporary campus hub. In 2013, 1100 Architect completed the first phase of work—the renovation of the athletic center, which included new group movement, strength training, and cardio fitness spaces.
