Knott Hall Student Commons, Loyola Blakefield

Baltimore, Maryland




120,000 sf


New Construction


1,000 students


In association with CS&D

A Jesuit school for boys in grades 6-12, Loyola features stately buildings and green space. The new facility nestles into the old buildings precisely. The stone on the building’s exterior and the oak beams inside reflect the older designs on campus.

An Important Legacy

The dramatic first impression as visitors traverse Alumni Hall is an overlook of the athletic fields. Perfectly situated for an unobstructed view of the game, Alumni Hall reflects the importance Loyola places on its legacy, and the adjacent Student Commons speaks to the present and future students who will leave as educated young men.

Modern Interpretation Of Tradition

Building on a distinguished historic tradition, the new Knott Hall at Loyola Blakefield serves as a striking first impression for visitors. Situated atop a hill along Charles Street, the facility—which houses an Alumni Hall, dining facility, gymnasium and Student Commons—has become the heart of the school on this picturestque campus imbued with tradition.

Closing Thoughts

The new facility enhances the campus’ collegiate feel, instilling pride in Loyola students and inspiring fear in the school’s athletic foes.
