2016 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION

GLENN AND TOWERS RESIDENCE HALLS
Georgia Tech
Atlanta, Fulton County

The comprehensive rehabilitation of Georgia Tech's Glenn and Towers Residence Halls restored their historic 1947 character while meeting the demands of modern college life in a manner designed to achieve LEED Gold certification. The project replaced inappropriate windows from a previous rehabilitation with units matching the historic design and added new dormer windows on courtyard facades to allow for the sensitive conversion of unused attic space into dorm rooms. Additionally a new building constructed in the courtyard discreetly connects the two dorms with a distinctly modern building that honors the campus' original master plan of a connected common space between the halls.
