Johns Hopkins University Gilman Hall

Baltimore, MD, USA

A new light-filled atrium is the academic and social heart of this renovated building with 40 classrooms, ten humanities departments, and an archaeology study center.

Kliment Halsband Architects—A PERKINS EASTMAN STUDIO
This project transformed 95-year-old Gilman Hall, the iconic center of the Johns Hopkins campus, into a modern, environmentally sustainable facility for the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. Inside the building, an outer ring of historic spaces and grandly scaled faculty offices are preserved, restored, and enhanced. Twenty-five thousand square feet of usable academic space replaces old bookstacks. Concentric rings of construction transition from historic to modern, culminating in the glass-roofed atrium, a social gathering space for the university at the center of the building. Below the atrium floor is the archaeology collection, housed in glass vitrines and visible from above. Redesigned circulation systems foster interaction. Restored historic rooms of significance become functional modern meeting and study spaces.
