University of Alabama
Renovation of Barnwell Hall
Located in the middle of a large concentration of sororities on the University of Alabama campus, the 1930’s Barnwell Hall was originally a women’s gym. A team goal was to maintain as much of the historical architectural fabric of the interior and exterior as possible.
The challenge was to design a renovation that would respond to the interests and needs of the predominately female community. A “backyard” patio and lawn provide additional activity and social spaces.
