ATLANTA, G.A. – October 2015 – As the Architect of Record, Stevens & Wilkinson, a full-service architecture, engineering and interior design firm, with offices in Atlanta, Ga. and Columbia, S.C., provided architecture and engineering design services for the new Georgia State University College of Law building, in downtown Atlanta, which opened its doors June 22, 2015. Administration, faculty and leaders of the College of Law celebrated the completion of the building at 85 Park Place, Atlanta, during a Sept. 9, 2015 ribbon-cutting ceremony with state government and judicial leaders, alumni and friends.

Primary objectives for the project included supplying much needed classrooms and state-of-the-art learning space. The College of Law Building was designed for collaboration, content sharing and group learning. It quickly has become the heart of Georgia State University and a gathering place for both internal and external communities.

Stevens & Wilkinson’s project team conceptualized and executed the design development for the exterior skin of the building as well as implemented the architecture and engineering to provide large assembly spaces, including a 230-seat moot courtroom and auditorium; an international arbitration center; and a 200-seat flexible-use conference center. The firm’s plan also involved large classrooms and seminar rooms designed to seat a variety of class sizes, ranging from 25 to 90 seats.

This was a collaborative effort with Design Architect, SmithGroupJJR, along with the design-partner Harris+Smith and McCarthy Building Companies. The project team collaborated to design and deliver a leading-edge building of individual and joint learning that also offers students, faculty and staff all the customary amenities necessary for institutional excellence.
