LaBella Honored to Receive 2024 Out-of-the-Box Design Award from CSI Rochester for RIT’s Max Lowenthal Hall Project!


Last week, CSI Rochester New York Chapter held its 2024 Annual Awards Dinner where LaBella received an Out-of-the-Box Design Award for Rochester Institute of Technology’s Max Lowenthal Hall expansion project. This design award highlights projects that promote the innovative use of conventional materials or methods in new ways.

Located within the Saunders College of Business, the Max Lowenthal Hall addition will provide roughly 80% more space for the College. Comprised of four floors and approximately 36,000 square feet, the addition contains an auditorium, classrooms, student collaboration spaces, lounges, a food venue, and offices, as well as a preeminent event space on the fourth floor featuring two outdoor terraces. Views from the addition were also carefully considered. The south side of the building overlooks the wetland and hills, the east side enjoys views of the athletic fields and courts, and the north side overlooks the buzzing Quarter Mile.
