Barn Expansion

It will serve as a gateway/link between the East Campus and the West Campus as well integrate indoor and outdoor spaces to support dining and entertainment programs. Ideally, the buildings will be designed to combine renovation with new construction to allow the Campus to retain a piece of its heritage.
