Harker Hall is the oldest building on University of Illinois Campus at 135 years old and is listed on the national registry for historic buildings. While keeping the exterior 3 story structure intact, Petry-Kuhne demolished all 3 interior floor structures and built back 4 stories with a new roof. This project was a remarkable accomplishment in providing modern features while maintaining the original architecture of this amazing historic building.
