With Hollenbeck Hall, Wittenberg University sought to bridge the traditions of its liberal arts background with the needs of today's students and technology. Hollenbeck Hall is the new home for the humanities and is much more than just a collection of classrooms and offices. It is a place to bring people and ideas together.
The hall is oriented at the top of Meyrs Hollow and is sited so the center tower is on axis with the campus entrance. The building form is divided into five distinct parts helping to maintain the campus scale. Each part is detailed differently picking up images of Wittenberg's rich building heritage. The warm brick with limestone is complemented with large sections of glass curtainwall.
The building is centered around a sun- lit atrium featuring the masonry tower and flanked by a 100-seat auditorium. The area not only serves as teaching space, but functions for social, academic and alumni gatherings for the entire community.
Off the atrium, are the faculty offices with classrooms and programs at the two ends. Each of the sections twist slightly, like streets of an old town, to avoid long corridors and the offsets are used to create lounge spaces for student/faculty interaction. All classrooms are equipped with the latest in teaching technology.
