Ground at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut by Bentel and Bentel Architects

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source:  Bentel and Bentel Architects

The new ‘Ground’ cafe, at Yale’s Marcel Breuer-designed Becton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (‘SEAS’), serves not only to create social cohesion among faculty and students of the engineering school, but also to encourage interaction between and among members of other departments in the University. In the design, the firm engaged the unadorned poured-concrete volume of this former seminar room by layering a palette of walnut planks, perforated aluminum, and cleft bluestone over the walls, floor, and ceiling of the space. The original concrete surfaces are intentionally visible through, and are highlighted by, the veils of the material intervention out of respect for Breuer’s unique exploration in his design of the textural possibilities of a single material.

Yale University Health Services Building

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

The combination of the three buildings on the block, Rose Center / University Police, Yale University Health Services Center and structured parking, along with site structures and landscape elements create a reinterpretation of the traditional, interiorized Yale campus block. This configuration allows not only pedestrian but also automobile passage easily into and through the site, a thoroughly contemporary campus block condition. As with the traditional block, building entries are located internal to the block.
