Greek Housing Village
Christopher Newport University,
Newport News, Virginia
GLAVÉ & HOLMES ARCHITECTURE (G&HA) developed a design for a new Greek Village of ten fraternity and sorority houses for Christopher Newport University (CNU). The Village provides an identifiable home on campus for the Greek organizations, all of which share a common lawn.
Four house models have been developed, including a duplex type, which provides CNU the flexibility to accommodate smaller and larger groups from year to year. Each house has a unique façade to express their individuality within the Greek community. The facilities will offer a combination of single and double rooms with shared bathrooms. Each house will also include laundry rooms, study spaces, kitchen and chapter rooms, and public restrooms. The project has been designed in compliance with VEES (Virginia Energy Conservation and Environmental Standards) certification.
