HISTORIC

OLD CHEM

INFO

PROJECT INFORMATION

CLIENT: Stanford University
LOCATION: Stanford, California
PROJECT TEAM: CAW acted as Associate Architect, working with Design Architect, EYP Architecture & Engineering.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Originally built in 1903 and extensively repaired after the 1906 earthquake, Stanford University’s Old Chemistry Building has been sitting vacant since 1987. The four-story sandstone structure with clay tile roof has been remodeled over the years but retains historic stairs, hallways, and expansive windows.

The current project, a Science Teaching and Learning Center, gives new life to the building’s historic use and will house classrooms, laboratories, and a library. A basement level addition will contain a 300-seat auditorium and a lecture hall, its roof forming a landscaped outdoor terrace. While refurbishment of existing historic features is critical to enhancing the building’s character, a transformation of the functional interior will meet the needs of modern science education, better take advantage of generous natural light, and create an unmistakably 21st Century student hub.

Along with the new design, an extensive seismic upgrade and modernized building systems will resurrect one of Stanford’s original buildings to serve the undergraduate student population for years to come.
