Interior Design



The design for the Lake Forest Graduate School of Management emerged from a comprehensive programming study completed by Wright Heerema Architects. The result is a building that has built-in flexibility to allow for multiple classroom scenarios as well as future expansion. A large daylit drum serves as the commons room and is the focus for students and faculty. A flexible multi-purpose room allows events from small seminars to school-wide functions. The clever use of a well-detailed architectural precast concrete exterior provides an attractive finish and serves as a very cost effective perimeter structural system.
