Higher Education

Prospective students regularly indicate that the quality of facilities - and the community life they create - is among the top criteria when selecting a school.

At LaBella, we’ve always understood that educational facilities need to be high performing and maintenance friendly. Our projects are designed to respond not only to program need, but also long-term operational expense.

As our practice has grown, we’ve coupled our expertise in building design with an advanced understanding of educational design. Academic buildings are no longer driven by ratios of students to seats or seats to classrooms. Our methods of instruction have changed in tandem with the technology of our lives.

Colleges and universities are tasked with solving the problems of today, but must also provide facilities equipped for the advances of tomorrow. This requires facilities that are flexible, sustainable, and cost-competitive.

Research centers, lab space, and incubators shouldn't be tucked away. We seeks ways to engage campus and display insights as part of an environment of learning.
For college campuses, the more we do, the more we're asked to.
It's not about our legacy, it's about yours. We design for your campus, not our portfolio.
