Creating a New Space for the 21st Century Student

At 90 years, Savery Hall – one of the most prominent Collegiate Gothic structures on the University of Washington’s historic quad – needed more than a facelift. It was time for a complete interior renovation that would make the building new again for 21st century students.

SRG completed the historic renovation of Savery Hall, a major campus classroom building that houses liberal arts and social sciences departments. Originally designed by Bebb and Gould and built in 1916, this historic building is a significant example of the collegiate Gothic style that has established the University of Washington’s reputation as an extraordinarily beautiful campus. A building with a prominent location and distinctive heritage, Savery was made new again for students in the 21st century. The building underwent seismic, structural, life-safety, and accessibility improvements, as well as an upgrade of all mechanical and telecommunications systems. The project achieved LEED Gold certification, using innovative strategies for natural ventilation and daylighting to minimize energy use and create high-quality learning environments.
