University of Florida: Newell Hall Renovation

University of Florida’s “Newell Hall has successfully filled a void on campus giving students a unique, active studying environment.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979, the Newell Hall Renovation required adherence to strict standards for preserving the historic structure. SchenkelShultz Architecture (Architect of Record) and Robert A.M. Stern Architects (Design Architect) were tasked with restoring some of the building’s original components. The effort included restoring the north entry doors that were bricked over in the 1940s, adding new energy-efficient windows with historic profiles to match the original design, and restoring brick and terra cotta accent elements. The exterior maintains the original character of the historic design and seamlessly blends with the other buildings in the campus’ historic district.”
