The Central Institute for the Deaf, affiliated with Washington University, is located in St. Louis, Missouri. This project consisted of the construction of two facilities. The first was a 42,000 SF classroom building that includes a gym, family center, music/art/discovery room and a library/computer lab. The second building encompasses 65,000 SF and serves as a research facility, conference center and central cafeteria.
A heavy emphasis was placed on reduced noise levels and “quiet systems” throughout the design of this project.
