Laura Angst Hall
R & D Masonry, Inc.
Architect: Contacts Without Company
The new Laura Angst Hall at Skagit Valley College serves as a symbol for the revitalization of the 50-year- old campus and creates a gateway building to the college from the Mount Vernon community. The 65,000-sf, two-story building provides modern laboratories and classrooms supporting programs in physical and environmental sciences, nursing, and health occupations. The plan centers on a two-story lobby opening to a rain garden which also provides a place for student interaction and informal learning. Exterior materials relate to the campus and feature a combination of brick, metal, glass, and concrete. The project will achieve LEED Gold certification.
