UC Berkeley · Lewis Hall: Michelle Chang Lab
This project includes renovation of lab spaces to retain two husband-and-wife faculty members who'd had been recruited by MIT — see also Tan Hall: Chris Chang Lab.
The Michelle Chang Lab in Lewis Hall was a renovation in-place in a very old lab building that had minimal existing HVAC capabilities. The new lab was more unified and open and obstructions were removed from windows to maximize the natural light. A new local HVAC system in the ceiling space of the lab provided proper lab ventilation.
The new Chang labs have safer Grad Student Desk areas located outside of but directly adjacent to the lab spaces and break areas for casual interactions among the research groups.
The Chang lab renovations in both Tan Hall and Lewis Hall serve as a model for how highly functional and desirable lab space can be created within the aging lab buildings.
