Coming to Law Grounds This Summer

The long-awaited Student-Faculty Center should be ready for occupancy this summer. The $6 million addition to Hunton & Williams Hall includes informal and formal dining rooms, a student study lounge, and a coffee bar. A large central space, to be known as "the Scott Commons" in honor of former Dean Robert E. Scott, will act as a "town square" where people meet on their way to dine, get a cup of coffee, or check their mail.

The Student-Faculty Center's south façade opens onto a brick patio and the Spies Garden.

The east front's tall windows separate the informal dining room inside, which will seat about 100, from the terrace, which will seat about 70.

This full perspective of the dining terrace shows the trellis (right), which will support a climbing vine, distinctive bluestone pavers, and planters for flowering shrubs and ground cover.

Visible in this view from the inside of the informal dining room is the cherry paneling, the high ceiling and, through the windows, the outdoor dining terrace and its trellis. During consturction, plastic protects the carpet.

This view, from the north end of the Scott Commons, shows what promises to be the most memorable space on Law Grounds. The sky-lit space measures 23 feet tall, by 26 feet wide, and 68 feet long, and will feature cherry-clad columns and pilasters, two large wall clocks, and an oak floor.

The dramatic crossing in the Scott Commons' skylight includes sun baffles, here partially installed, that will help diffuse sunlight on bright days.
