Chamberlin Lodge is a decades-old neo-classical structure on the Denison University campus that has housed various functions, including fraternity housing, administrative offices, classroom and library functions, and interim laboratories for the chemistry department. Various renovations and additions to the historic structure had severely altered the classical architecture of the building.
The project involved the demolition of the 1970’s era additions, fully gutting the interior structure of the building, restoring the historic building exterior, and adding a five-story wing, designed for student residences.
The 31,600 SF renovated dormitory structure houses 60 students in 4-bedroom suites, designed to be competitive with contemporary apartment-style residential units. Additional flexible meeting spaces, study rooms, and common social rooms complete the building program. The project is designed to meet LEED Silver certification.
