ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Luckett & Farley provided architecture, engineering, and interior design and construction administration services for the renovation of Dana Residence Hall, originally a student housing facility built in 1960. The facility received LEED Gold certification.

Dana Hall, similar to Bingham Hall, is a 24,427 SF facility housing 120 male students on four floors. The objective of the college was to upgrade the facility and modify it to better fit the surrounding campus’ traditional-style higher learning aesthetic. The rooms remained double-occupancy while major upgrades include a new HVAC system connected to the central plant and a new facade and roof structure. New spaces for mechanical rooms and a central elevator were also added. 

Because of Dana’s proximity to adjacent housing, it is a gathering space for neighboring co-eds. Therefore the front entry included a new indoor/outdoor social/study area to facilitate interaction as well as a rooftop patio garden. Study areas and lounges were included as part of proposed additions to the existing facility, as well as expanding the first floor married students’ apartment.
