Audiology Clinic, Research A Building, Penn State University - University Park, PA

Project Completion: 2023

Project Highlights: 

  • The Penn State HHD Audiology Clinic Program hired HLA to provide professional architectural services in moving their existing language clinic from the Ford to the Research A Building

  • HLA ensured the waiting room and reception area allowed for privacy with a sleek and welcoming modern design 

  • Lead graduate architect Bryan Ray and Interior Designer Melissa Shank worked with the department to monitor budget constraints by re-using equipment where viable, while remaining sensitive to faculty needs and expectations in the new space

  • Options were explored for visual way-finding incorporating creative uses of paint and carpet colors

  • Noise control was an important consideration throughout, as well as achieving STC rating for acoustically sensitive spaces
