The University of California, Berkeley selected STUDIOS to design the new Campbell Hall. The Astronomy and Physics building, along with neighbors Birge Hall and LeConte Hall, will create a new integrative physical sciences complex to facilitate close interaction between students and faculty within the University’s growing interdisciplinary science programs.

The new building will house laboratories, instructional spaces, academic and administrative offices, support spaces, a low-vibration physics research laboratory, and a rooftop observatory.

Campbell Hall sits facing arguably UC Berkeley’s most significant historical plaza, which consists of Hearst Mining Circle and opposite, the historical Hearst Memorial Mining Building, and Old LeConte Hall (also renovated by STUDIOS). The design lexicon for the new Campbell Hall is at once respectful of the existing neighboring historic structures and also conscious of the university’s mission for student-faculty interaction and sustainable design.
