Pace University’s existing facilities were originally built to house an undergraduate college. In order for Pace to remain an American Bar Association accredited law school, a plan was developed to reorganize 261,000 sf of existing space and to add a new 27,000 sf state-of-the-art classroom building to their White Plains campus. Designed to create a new image for the campus, the new classroom building links four major existing campus buildings, defines a new campus quadrangle, and establishes a design vocabulary for the rehabilitation of existing structures that highlights their positive qualities.

The new classroom building offers students and faculty a pleasant and technologically sophisticated facility that connects activities inside with spectacular views of the quadrangle through a set of lounges and corridors set along an exterior wall of windows.
