Auburn West Rehabilitation

Hasenstab Architects provided architectural and interior design services for the multi-phased rehabilitation of Auburn West Tower at The University of Akron. The project began with the demolition and rehabilitation of an integrated parking structure to relocate the Department of Biology from other areas in Auburn West Tower.

Renovations included an improved entryway for the Engineering and Biology Departments. The building houses teaching and research labs, offices for faculty and administration purposes, and space for storage and archives. Key functions of the Biology Department include studies in animal physiology, botany, ecology/evolution, microbiology and zoology.
