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 three-story structure intact, Petry Kuhne demolished all three interior floor structures and built back four 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.
