Dillard University

New Orleans, LA

Sizeler Thompson Brown Architects developed a Master Plan/Campus Plan & Campus Facilities Assessment. STBA led several renovations, new construction, and extensive site infrastructure improvement projects, always keeping the historic context of the existing facilities in mind.

The new 130,000 SF Professional Schools Building at Dillard University will house a variety of academic disciplines including: Business School, math and computer labs, chemistry and physics labs, School of Nursing, a public health clinic, various major classrooms, and a 440-seat auditorium. It will be the first "green" building on Dillard's campus: the atrium and clerestory lights bring light into the center of the design which will achieve LEED Gold certification. The exterior has been designed to relate to and enhance the Dillard campus with a contemporary interpretation of the Jeffersonian style of the existing buildings.
