Jury comments: This is a beautiful restoration of an existing space. The architect made the space come to life. Unearthing the pool was a great concept and then the architect took it even a step further by using and respecting the original architecture, which they uncovered. They did an exquisite job of adding new elegant details, such as windows and doors, which are in the spirit of the old building but beautiful in the world of today. The level of craftsmanship on these newly inserted pieces is extraordinary. The architects practiced great restraint and left the building real. The result is a gem of a building for this campus.
