Designed by architect Eero Saarinen in 1958 for the University of Pennsylvania’s campus, Hill College House is an internationally recognized architectural landmark located at the corner of 33rd and Walnut Streets. A major renovation of the building addressed maintenance and upgrade needs. Work included the conversion of all bathrooms to individual restrooms and shower rooms, renovations to all dorm rooms and common spaces, significant upgrades to MEP systems, and a major upgrade to the kitchen and dining areas. In addition, the building envelope was improved with a new roof and curtainwall, repair of existing masonry, and upgrades to two existing roof terraces. Existing windows were removed, refurbished, and reinstalled as part of the project, and a new bridge was constructed at the building’s entry.
