Photo Essay: A Perfect Mix of Old-World Charm and Modern-Day Business Elegance









 
 

The new Hughes Hall:

A Perfect Mix of Old-World Charm and
Modern-Day Business Elegance

Freshly scrubbed window lintels and bright white marble quoins catch the eye when one sees Hughes Hall from the outside.

But step inside through the sliding glass doors of the Gabelli School of Business and it’s hard not to notice that something new is going on. As stock data streams through screens in bright colors, terrazzo floors meet a stairwell of floating limestone steps with thin walnut banisters. In a nod to the business nature of the school, rich wood detailing finds its way throughout the building, among a contemporary vernacular of planes and patterns.
