Loyola University Chicago Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing

Maywood, Illinois, USA

Located on Loyola University’s Medical Center Campus, the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing and Center for Collaborative Learning is an innovative model in medical education. The design creates a unique and collaborative learning environment where students work together as a medical team, simulating real-world situations. The center is a sustainable and cost-conscious campus, and innovative designs conserve energy and resources. Kawneer’s 2500 PG Wall® Curtain Wall System is used for its flexibility; 360 Insulclad® Entrances optimize thermal efficiency for the entire building façade; external custom Versoleil® Sunshades shade the south wall and an operable, external shading system on the west wall helps control heat gain.
