Built in 1975, Marlboro Hall is the single largest building on the Prince George’s Community College campus. The building occupies a strategic site defining both the inner quad and a campus edge with the future possibilities suggested by the college’s Master Plan. A substantially renovated and expanded Marlboro Hall presents a design opportunity to solidify key principles of the Master Plan by creating an invitation to a more dynamic educational experience and the development of the PGCC community. The renovated and expanded Marlboro Hall Building will be the new home of Learning Foundations, Liberal Arts, Mathematics, and Social Sciences and Business.
One key feature in JCJ’s proposal was to create a circulation lifeline within the building that simultaneously knits together the new and existing areas into an Urban Street while providing a gracious indoor space that will become the ‘living room’ for the college. The project will correct long-standing deficiencies and will create a variety of spaces for instruction and academic support including classrooms, laboratories, offices, study and tutoring areas. The College has established a LEED Gold requirement for this project.
