Caltech Kerckhoff Lecture Hall Renovation Pasadena, California
Kaplan Chen Kaplan refurbished the Lecture Hall in the Kerckhoff Biology Building, one of the original buildings designed by Bertram Goodhue on the Caltech campus. We removed lay-in ceilings and mechanical soffits and restored original plaster ceiling. We created a system of dimmable direct and indirect lighting and designed new audio-visual and projection cabinets at the back of the space. Original decorative lecture hall seating was restored including accommodation for accessibility.
