Muntz Hall Phase II


Muntz Hall Phase II

The University of Cincinnati selected emersion DESIGN to renovate UC’s Blue Ash Campus’ primary academic building. Muntz Hall is a 172,000 sf building containing classrooms, faculty offices, and support spaces.

The work is being phased over a 4-5-year period to accommodate continued occupancy and use of the building. The first stage of work included developing a master plan, programming, and facility audit. Envelope upgrade includes exterior skin, glazing and roof replacement. The second phase of work focused on renovations to the third floor teachers lounge, classrooms, and office areas. Individual spaces include a mix of active learning & traditional classrooms, private faculty and open office space, academic student services offices, open lounge & meeting spaces, break rooms, and student life areas. The design team opened up the formerly isolated interior to encourage interaction and collaboration.
