2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION

CAMPBELL HALL
Agnes Scott College
Decatur, DeKalb County

Built in the early 1950s as a science laboratory building, Campbell Hall at Agnes Scott College is a unique mix of mid-century modern with the Collegiate Gothic detailing seen throughout the Agnes Scott campus. The college embarked on a full rehabilitation of the old laboratory building in 2012 to create a LEED certified living and learning facility. The building's interior, which had been previously altered, now incorporates living spaces with large teaching classrooms and common areas. Deteriorating limestone details on the exterior were repaired, masonry was repointed, and non-historic windows were replaced with new, energy efficient aluminum windows that emulate the original steel window profiles and design. The original wood entry doors and original steel light fixtures were beautifully restored.
