Boar’s Head Inn Meeting Pavilion
University of Virginia Foundation,
NESTLED IN THE FOOTHILLS of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville’s Boar’s Head Inn offers guests a luxurious experience in a timeless, pastoral setting. The University of Virginia Foundation acquired the Boar’s Head in 1988, and commissioned Glavé & Holmes Architecture (G&HA) to design a new conference facility.
The new state-of-the-art Meeting Pavilion expanded the inn’s current conferencing capabilities with a 5,400-square-foot ballroom, a business center, a break-out meeting room, pre-function space, and full commercial kitchen. The massing and proportion of the building relate to the residential scale of the inn’s context. The design, drawing influence from English Arts and Crafts architect Charles Voysey, complements the Boar’s Head tradition of Old English country inn hospitality.
