The Administrative Offices for the University of Alabama Graduate School are located within the Rose Administration Building at the heart of the University’s campus and serves the needs of over 5,000 postgraduates. The renovation of this existing space resulted from a collaborative visioning exercise with the Graduate School dean and staff, imagining a space that reflected their values and their identity. The organization and flow of space was clarified from the original plan while taking advantage of exposed structure to heighten perimeter offices. Glass is extensively used to create a sense of light and openness while defining private working areas. An existing material palette received new translations throughout to emphasize the school’s unique place within the University while anchoring it to the spirit of the larger Rose Administration.
