Location: Universidad de Puerto Rico, Recinto de Aguadilla
Phase: Completed
Year: 2021
Size: 21,000 sq. ft.
Cost: $2.5M
Description: Rehabilitation of a 3-story building to include classrooms, faculty offices, lounges and bathrooms. The project also included refurbishing all exterior facades and stairs.
Description: The 3-story building was built around the 1930’s as part of the US Ramey Air Force Base. In 1973 was deactivated and later became part of the University of Puerto Rico, Aguadilla Campus. The project consists of a full renovation of all interior spaces to accommodate 16 classrooms, meeting rooms, computer labs, a large student lounge, new bathrooms, and a full wing of faculty offices for four separate departments on the 3rd floor. The design introduced a new entry portico that doubled as a “front porch” lounge for students. This new identity has been appreciated by the student population as it circulates on the ground level walkways.
