Alumni House Expansion
College of William and Mary,
Glavé & Holmes was engaged to provide a “signature” design for William & Mary’s Alumni House. Sited prominently near the north campus entry and the football stadium, the expansion respects the historic Bright House serving as the current Alumni Center, as well as the college’s campus aesthetic.
The expansion consists of a three-level addition and limited renovation to the existing building to provide space for banqueting 400 people, as well as requisite support spaces. The design concept reflects the architectural character of William & Mary’s historic campus and provides a prominent new entry. The addition is set back from the existing building, and a flanking wing creates an entry court that is on axis with a new entry drive. Additional terraces provide spaces for gathering and various outdoor events. The building will house Alumni Association administrative offices and will provide assembly space for meetings and alumni functions.
