As only the third building on campus, Heritage Hall (Building 3) supports multiple programs for Texas A&M University-Central Texas (TAMUCT) as it looks fulfill its masterplan.
The building’s multifaceted program includes classrooms, a makerspace, kinesiology suite, student gym, war records archive, student organization offices, faculty offices, ROTC offices and laundry facilities, and a coffee shop.
TAMUCT desired to increase its instructional and research capabilities. The design prioritized specialized, purpose-built instructional and research laboratories and their support spaces for biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and kinesiology.
Th grand porch at the building’s entryway addresses the campus mall, and extends the building lobby with shaded seating. The 3-story lobby offers dynamic glimpses through the building and frames a view of a small mountain in the distance. The lobby also provides access to the rear shaded court that is served by the coffee bar and features an amphitheater carved into the hillside and faced with large limestone blocks.
