Hood McPherson Building | AU Urban Studio

Auburn University’s real estate office asked us to survey an existing a 6 story 36,000 square foot former furniture warehouse and showroom in downtown Birmingham. Auburn asked for programming and planning test options from two Birmingham firms. We attended programming meetings with a variety of potential university tenants including a new home for the School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape Architecture's Urban Design Studio program. We then developed a conceptual design and presented it to the potential tenants. As a result of our design presentation, we were selected by Auburn University to advance the ideas for a final presentation to University administration for approval of the building purchase. The building has since been purchased and we await the next steps for development.
