The renovation of Kottman Hall 103 at The Ohio State University’s agricultural campus transformed this 275-seat lecture hall into a first-class teaching and distance learning facility. Appropriate technology for current day teaching and presentation methods is integrated seamlessly into the design.
The wood slat ceiling radiating from the front of the room to the back dramatically emphasizes the focal point of the space. A combination of medium and dark stained cherry wood paneling and energetic colors gives the space a refined but youthful feel. New seating, upholstery and flooring complete the design. The use of natural materials and colors reflect the values of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
