Baltimore, MD (11.20.15) – Rubeling & Associates, the Architecture and Interior Design Division of JMT, was responsible for the architecture and interior design of the newly completed Commons Building and Smith Hall at The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland.
For the 8,000 square foot addition, Rubeling & Associates provided the services for architectural, which included construction administration, as well as interior design finishes and furniture selection. The project also included renovation upgrades to all restrooms and the installation of a new sprinkler system throughout the buildings.
The entire project was completed under $4 million. Included in the new building is a larger kitchen, opening dining and commons for up to 400 students. One noteworthy element is the ceiling in Smith Hall, which is both functional and decorative. Rubeling & Associates designed the space so that sound absorbing materials were installed behind and in between the wood-slatted ceiling panels.
“This modern and flexible building layout has been designed to serve the long-term dining and special event needs of the student population, and its creative architecture blends seamlessly with the existing campus,” said Joseph Rode, President of The Mullan Contracting Company, which served as the General Contractor on the project.
“We are pleased we had the opportunity to design another project for Boys’ Latin as well as work with Joe Rode and his team at Mullan to provide a space that is going to enhance the quality of life for the faculty, staff, and students on a daily basis,” says Al Rubeling, Senior Vice President of Rubeling & Associates, a JMT Division.
Continues Rubeling, “Education is a key focus area at Rubeling & Associates – we really enjoy creating spaces that allow students to have a more interactions and collaborative learning environment.”
