Office of Development
As the University of Notre Dame’s Office of Development grew, so did their need for space. As a result, the University commissioned CSO Architects to design the interior build-out of the 3rd floor of the Eddy Street Commons building. CSO worked closely with the Office of the University Architect and the Office of Development to create a space that felt engaged with the campus, spoke to the rich tradition of Notre Dame, and inspired visitors and staff alike. The Office of Development works closely with potential and existing donors, and for this reason it was essential for the space to be welcoming to all visitors. This was accomplished by using classic materials that make one feel at home and that capture the essence of Notre Dame. The space houses a large Entertainment Suite, a Prefunction Lobby, impromptu meeting spaces, and a café for staff. These amenities, along with the flexibility of the space, provide support for the nearly 130 staff members housed within the 28,000 square foot facility.
