Hildebrand Hall houses the library and research laboratories for the College of Chemistry at UC Berkeley. The project renovated a portion of the library into three new seminar rooms. These seminar rooms were a vital component for implementation of the new teaching model at the school. Under graduate students working in the lab in groups of three would report findings to the entire class in these new seminar rooms. The rooms are oriented toward an old redwood grove providing a rich and calming backdrop to the intense academic actives within.
