Ennis Hall Rehabilitation

Milledgeville, GA

Ennis Hall is a stately former residence hall, constructed in 1918 on the campus of Georgia College & State University (GCSU).

The 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 designed the rehabilitation of Ennis Hall for use by the GCSU Art Department. The building houses drawing, painting, fiber arts, photography and digital media as well as gallery space, classrooms and faculty offices. The design strives to accommodate the extensive program while retaining the building’s character-defining features. The resulting LEED Silver certified building is a blending of past, present and future that serves as a set of spaces for art education and also as a place to inspire creativity.
