Rowland Design worked with the National Gamma Phi Beta Housing Corporation to undergo an extensive renovation to their original chapter house at the University of Michigan. As the Greek organization’s Beta Chapter, the recolonization of the sorority at the university was paramount.
The client’s desire was to create an impactful campus presence which led to the reconfiguring and upgrading of the building’s exterior. A correctly proportioned and detailed Greek Revival façade and associated front porch, often recognized with Greek organizations, were added to the existing house.
Interior spaces were also reorganized for more efficient use and circulation. Fresh finishes and furniture offered the house a brand-new look and feel. The Gamma Phi Beta brand and colors were thoughtfully integrated throughout. Necessary life safety improvements and accessibility concerns were addressed during the renovation.
