Anna Smith Residence Hall Renovation

After completing the Deep Green Residence Hall, Berea College retained Hastings+Chivetta to complete a renovation of the nearby 90-bed Anna Smith Residence Hall.

The three-story residence hall was fully renovated, including residence rooms, lounge areas, study rooms, bathrooms and laundry rooms. The lower level contains a kitchen, dining room, rec room and study rooms. The entry level contains a lobby, living room and office in addition to a 3-bedroom apartment and seven 2-bed units. The second and third levels contain a mix of 1- and 2-bed rooms and a kitchen and lounges on each floor.

The renovation incorporates many sustainable design elements and is seeking LEED Gold certification. Sustainable elements include a Building Dashboard energy monitoring system, energy-efficient lighting and a geothermal heat pump system with fan coil units. Water-efficient landscaping is incorporated, along with reductions in water use throughout the building. Recycled content, regional materials, low-emitting materials and FSC certified wood were used throughout the residence hall.

An outdoor patio will also be included in the project, which is currently out for bid.
