The UNLV William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration program is regarded as the premier program of its type anywhere in the world today. UNLV hired CSD to design the new 93,500 SF HAB building to reflect this highly elevated stature.The building embraces its hospitality roots and blends them with the rigors of an academic program. The inner atrium, lower plaza’s, upper balconies and roof top gardens provide students and faculty alike with opportunities for daily serendipitous’encounters, places to study as groups or individually, to entertain or just relax. The interior of the building includes classrooms, computer labs, teaching kitchen, cafe,professional golf management program simulation labs, learning studios, specialty classrooms, offices and administration areas. The exterior exudes a sense of permanence, individuality and presence with the use of stone, steel and glass on a campus of eclectic styles. It responds to its place, program and climate. The project was recently completed and is seeking LEED Silver Certification.
