State-of-Art Physician Assistant Building Transforms City Block | Milwaukee, WI

GROTH Design Group was the architect of record for this highly-visible building on Marquette University’s Campus. The design features moveable walls and equipment, allowing students to work on simulated cases with students in other health-related specialties. Beyond its academic mission, the glassy, four-story facility is welcoming and community-facing, transforming its Clybourn Street corridor.

Select program areas include:

  • Classrooms, including amphitheater seating and active learning spaces
  • OR, Trauma, ICU and inpatient room simulation
  • Exam room simulation and observation spaces
  • Open clinic practice areas
  • Flexible classrooms 
  • Conference rooms
  • Breakout areas 
  • Offices
  • Locker areas and showers
  • Student and faculty lounge spaces

The exterior of the addition presents a contemporary facade reflecting the innovative learning environment within, while using a blend of materials drawn from the multiple previous additions in a cohesive and unified campus design.
