Location: Butler University | Indianapolis, IN

More than a decade had passed since our studio was considered for a remodel of the Johnson Board Room in Butler University’s Robertson Hall. At the time a hand blocked wallpaper from the 1800s depicting Butler’s architectural heritage was to be replicated. The project was never realized; however, in 2011 the idea was resurrected.

Seven of the university’s most iconic buildings were selected for the considerable mural executed by local artists, Blice Edwards. A palette of more than 40 colors were used to craft the immense art work which extends to the 22-foot ceiling.

Also incorporated into the project scope were a host of other improvements aside from the mural. Appropriately detailed millwork framing a prominent entry, buffets with black granite tops, the camouflage of return air-grilles and sound absorption blankets were just a few of the enhancements.

Stately but simple floor to ceiling velvet curtains were installed to enrich the room and provide an elongated design element. Fresh traditional carpet tiles and new large-scale pendants replaced out of date floor finishes and lighting respectively. Upgrading technology was important during the remodel, adding two media spaces to the Johnson Board Room to house upgraded systems.
