St. Olaf College Regents Hall of Natural and Mathematical Sciences

Open / Close

  • AIA Chicago Design Excellence Award

As the largest and most complex academic facility to achieve LEED Platinum certification, the 193,000-s.f. Regents Hall of Natural and Mathematical Sciences expresses the highest level of green design, with sustainable initiatives implemented throughout the building. Students sit on furniture made from trees that were cleared for the new site, they study outside on the green roof and learn in classrooms filled with natural light and designed with recycled materials.

Regents Hall is not simply a model for responsible environmental stewardship, but a daily working example of sustainability in practice.
