MCLA’s work on the University of Baltimore School of Law is featured as a case study on Zumtobel Lighting’s website. The John and Frances Angelos Law Center at the University of Baltimore is the sixth-largest public law school in the U.S. Completed in April 2013, this 12-story building is a transformative, architectural landmark for the campus and central Baltimore.
Meeting the requirement to create a progressive facility using all LED sources, MCLA incorporated LED in 95% of the entire space: central lobby atrium, terraced study spaces, 300-seat moot court room, law clinic, classrooms, 32,000sf library, and auditorium. The project incorporated comprehensive daylight controls to target the planned LEED Platinum building rating. Architectural design included a signifi cant daylight studies for the atrium and circulation areas.
Besides achieving LEED-NC Platinum building certification, this law center has won many regional and national awards including the 2013 AIA Maryland Honor Award (Institutional Architecture), 2014 AIA COTE Top Ten Award, and 2014 IES Illumination Award of Excellence for Interior Lighting Design, a national level award for lighting.
