Ennis Hall Rehabilitation
Ennis Hall is a stately former residence hall, constructed in 1918 on the campus of Georgia College & State University (GCSU). This brick structure is one of a series of classical revival buildings in the Milledgeville historic district, which defines and characterizes this central Georgia campus. The building has seen few alterations through the years and retains most of its historic materials, details and spaces.
Lord, Aeck & Sargent is currently designing the rehabilitation of Ennis Hall for use by the GCSU Art Department. The building will house drawing, painting, fiber arts, photography and digital media as well as gallery space, classrooms and faculty offices. The concept design strives to accommodate the extensive program while retaining the building’s character-defining features. The result will be a blending of past, present and future that will serve as a set of spaces for art education, and also as a place to inspire creativity.
