AMA’s design for Oelman Hall, which houses the Department of Chemistry, included the complete renovation of classrooms and public spaces on the first and second floors.
New colorful image panels line the corridor walls, expressing the school’s identity. Showcasing the “rockstars of science,” the panels create focal points in Lobby seating areas. Bold patterned floors and bright colors create an activated, student-focused learning environment.
This project also included the renovation of one of WSU’s largest lecture halls. Room 109, which seats 380, is used extensively for Freshman lecture courses, and is used by nearly every student at WSU. New finishes and upholstered fixed seating give this outdated space a fresh, exciting new look. The dynamic new ceiling and lighting design defines circulation, creates differentiation in seating areas and provides a bold focal point for the building.
The room supports distance learning, webinars and other gatherings that require use of advanced audiovisual technologies.
