THE RICHARD AND MARGOT WARCH CAMPUS CENTER, LAWRENCE UNIVERSITY

Appleton, WI

Lawrence University wanted a central gathering space fostering community; a campus living room. The building takes inspiration from a town square, and invites all who enter to circulate both horizontally and vertically on its interior “streets” to find places to eat, study, congregate, seek entertainment or just relax. The campus center incorporates many elements of sustainable design and was awarded LEED Gold Certification, the first higher education building in Wisconsin to receive this level of certification.

The building design was a collaboration with KSS Architects.
