Project Description: Located on the University of New Mexico’s North Campus, the Pete & Nancy Domenici Hall greets its visitors in a two-story main lobby, featuring a two-ton stone fountain, illuminated by the structural skylight high above. This stunning building houses one of the premiere neurosciences and mental illness research facilities in the nation. The project began with a 9,855 sq. ft remodel of UNM’s existing MIND and COBRE CMRRC facility and ended with a 42,315 sq. ft. two-story addition. The new structure is primarily structural steel, with areas of masonry and wood accents. The building engages its site through the skillful use of radiused cast-in-place concrete site walls with accompanying ramps providing ADA access. The exterior is primarily stucco, with exposed architectural concrete elements. Of particular interest is a two-story vertical cylindrical conference room clad in zinc-plated metal.
