Southeastern Louisiana University: Pursley Hall


Hammond, Louisiana


State of Louisiana

Completion Date


The expansion to the existing chemistry and physics building for Southeastern Louisiana University includes 8 new advanced laboratories, 2 stairwells, expressed with curved glass block forms, and an embracing entry forecourt with circular drive. The forms of the addition respond to the Art Deco influence on the campus and blend into the existing modernist building to create an addition that is harmonious. Strong focal elements are created to address the functional requirements of the fire stairs and the accessible rooftop mechanical penthouse.
