Ida Noyes Hall, University of Chicago Grand Staircase

Designed in 1916 by the firm Shepley, Rutan & Collidge, the Ida Noyes Hall at the University of Chicago began life as a women’s gymnasium and social center. Lovingly maintained for nearly 100 years, the magnificent interior of the building features decorative oak wainscoting, a molded plaster ceiling with medallions and marvelous oak flooring.  Today the hall serves as the home for Doc Films and is universally recognized as a magnificent event location.

Ida Noyes Hall Grand Staircase, University of ChicagoEach year dozens of weddings and corporate events are held in various rooms including the Cloister Club, Library and top-floor Theatre. Being active year round, one can imagine that the wood floors and magnificent grand staircase see a great amount of use.

For several years, Mr. Floor has been chosen to repair and refinish both the original hardwood flooring and staircase.  Just this month we completed a restorative sanding and refinishing of the grand staircase, returning it to perfection. While you might not have a hundred year old floor that requires the attention of the Ida Noyes Hall, we bring the same skill and attention to detail to each and every project we do.
