After all, the architectural associate with Waller, Todd and Sadler Architects knows a thing or two about the college, being a graduate himself.
Hubbell received his associate of applied science in computer aided drafting and design - architectural drafting in 2006. From here, he transferred to Hampton University, where he earned his master’s in architecture in 2010.
Waller, Todd and Sadler Architects partnered with Hom + Goldman Architects for the design of the 89,000 square-foot Virginia Beach Student Center, which opened on Jan. 13.
“My involvement was heavy in the schematic planning, mostly in determining the exact location of the building,” Hubbell said. “I was tagged as an advisor of sorts in how the campus worked, and how placement of the building could be optimized to capture established circulation patterns. This ultimately led to the building being located on the pond, a unique solution to say the least.”
