UC Berkeley · Barker Hall: Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute

The former Berkeley Neuroscience Center, located on the first two floors of Barker Hall, had been emptied for a seismic upgrade project, during which the new donor—Olympic Gold medalist, Helen Wills Moody—provided the funds for a new, expanded center. The new Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute is a two-floor fit-up of the former. Each new floor is organized around a ‘suite’ design which promotes casual interaction. The project also included administrative areas, neuroscience test and exam rooms, wet labs, computational neuroscience labs and a brain imaging center computer room. Acoustical privacy was provided for the new computational neuroscience labs through use of a flexible/relocatable partition system.
