Design that Encourages Transparency, Collaboration and Connection
The 65,000 sf renovation of St. John’s University Peter J. Tobin College of Business was guided by three important themes: transparency, collaboration and connection. The result of a complete renovation of Bent Hall, the facility now brings all of the College of Business’ components under one roof.
A new arrangement of classrooms and offices, paired with an abundance of collaboration spaces throughout the facility, help foster stronger student-to-student, student-to-faculty and faculty-to-faculty connections. Many of the spaces incorporate glass fronts, allowing students to engage with each other while taking advantage of natural light and views of the surrounding campus. A high-tech financial lab complete with Bloomberg terminals and a start-up incubator lab provide students with the best academic resources available. The Peter J. Tobin College of Business is one of several projects CannonDesign is working on with the University.
