Berkshire Hall Transformation

Berkshire Hall will be closed starting summer of 2020 for a complete renovation and transformation. When Berkshire Hall re-opens in early summer of 2022, it will have been transformed into a new, vibrant and exciting dining facility and recreation center with an Urban Renewal styling.

New dining features will provide a robust selection of meal options with separate prep stations including a brick oven pizza oven, grill, pasta bar, sandwich station and a variety of hot entrees. The dining room space will be equipped with a separate salad and soup bar, and gluten free/vegan stations. Dining seating capacity of over 300, barista styled coffee shop with panini, smoothies, and to-go eating options, a fireplace and an abundance of casual seating and lounge areas will invite students from the quad through a 2-story glass façade.

Recreation areas will include a full-sized indoor basketball court, offices for the recreation department, an athletic training facility, 2 recreation studios, locker rooms and showers, and a new state-of-the-art cardio fitness center.

Architects assigned to this project are Tecton Architects.
