Our firm sought to bring a historical authenticity through close attention to the classical details of the project, rooting it to Georgian estates that inspired the architectural traditions of sorority houses. We studied overall facade proportions as well as details and were particularly influenced by the work of the English architect Edwin Lutyens and Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio.

The central two-story portico allows the
building to achieve its unique architectural
character, rooted in the American brick
architecture of the southeast

Significant programmatic elements include sleeping quarters for 85 girls plus a house director’s suite, a commercial kitchen with dining room seating up to 200 and a chapter room seating up to 350.
