University of Baltimore • Baltimore, Maryland
Following the completion of the award-winning University of Baltimore Angelos Law Center, Mueller Associates was again selected to team with Behnisch Architekten to design the comprehensive renovation of the university’s Robert L. Bogomolny Library. The 58,000-square-foot building was constructed in 1965 and required extensive upgrades to remedy MEP system deficiencies. The modernization also incorporated new technologies and created flexible spaces for research, study, library operations, and special events.
The design included the conversion of the space formerly occupied by an auditorium into a new full-height, angled atrium or “Glass Hall” accommodating academic and public space. This addition to the library’s existing, four-story “floating box” structure promotes interior circulation and brings daylight and views into the original floor plate. Glass-walled study and meeting spaces were inserted throughout the facility. The modernization continues to accommodate a large collection of books but also supports expansive use of technology by individuals and groups.
