About this project
Berea College is a small four-year liberal arts college located in Berea, Kentucky. Luckett & Farley is provided architecture, engineering and interior design services for the renovation of Dana Residence Hall, a student housing facility built in 1960.
The 27,427sf facility houses 120 male students on four floors. The objective of the College is to upgrade the facility and modify it to better fit the surrounding campus’ traditional-style higher learning aesthetic.
The rooms remain double-occupancy while major upgrades include a new HVAC system connected to the central plant and a new façade and roof structure.
Because of Dana’s proximity to adjacent housing, it is a gathering space for neighboring co-eds. Therefore the front entry includes a new indoor/outdoor social/study area to facilitate interaction. Additional study areas and lounges are also included as part additions to the existing facility, as well as expanding the first floor married students’ apartment. New spaces for mechanical rooms and a central elevator are also planned.
The facility will be designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
