Description: The project included demolition of the current president's home and replacing it with a new, multi-functional 6500sf campus building that is comprised of three primary areas: entertaining space, living space for the university president and their family, and guest accommodations for visiting dignitaries.

The university needed a facility that could accommodate up to 115 guests at indoor standing receptions and sit down dinners for up to 50 guests. Piper-Wind's design created a flexible large event space to accommodate a variety of events. A formal dining room allows for more intimate sit down dinners and can accommodate up to 20 guests. The event space and the formal dining room are serviced by a single catering kitchen and open onto an exterior brick patio that provides an additional space for entertaining. The guest suite is situated away from the university president's living space and includes a separate exterior entrance.

The portion of the building dedicated to living space for the university president and their family includes a living room, kitchen and dining room, master suite, two additional bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms and a laundry room. The entire building is ADA compliant and incorporates many sustainable design features.
