Location: Oakland, California
Client: Peralta Community College
YHLA was asked to help design the centerpiece of a campus-wide rehabilitation plan at Oakland's Laney College. The nine story Administration Tower, originally designed in 1968 was in dire need of interior upgrades. Major design components consist of a fully reconfigured, ground floor lobby with an information desk, computerized kiosks, display areas and energy efficient lighting. Administration floors were upgraded with state-of-the-art infrastructure and lighting systems with some office areas reconfigured for increased efficiency. New sustainable finishes were also provided building efficiency.
