Darden Executive Education Hotel
University of Virginia,
GLAVÉ & HOLMES ARCHITECTURE (G&HA), along with Ayers Saint Gross, designed the $36 million expansion of the University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business. As part of this process, G&HA designed an Executive Education Residence Hotel addition to Sponsors Hall, the school’s hospitality facility for visiting seminar attendees. The addition varies in height from two to four stories, due to the sloping site, and houses 60 guest rooms, 18 group study rooms, and a bookstore.
The structure maintains the existing architectural vocabulary, components and exterior palette—such as Old Virginia brick, pitched standing metal seam roofs, and window shutters—to blend with the surrounding Darden School buildings.
