Specht Harpman was invited to renovate and add to an existing 1950s-era building on the University's main campus in South Austin. The addition exists as a bridge between Doyle and Premont Halls, creating an active, lively, tree-shaded courtyard out of an underused adjacent field. The project includes a caf, classrooms, offices for faculty and administrative staff, and psychology observation spaces.
