The Towers at Young Harris College in Georgia by Lord Aeck Sargent

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Article source: Lord Aeck Sargent

At Young Harris College, when talking about the institution’s newest residence hall, you could recite the adage, “What’s old is new again,” and on the face of it, you’d be right.

YHC, which less than six years ago began its transition from a two-year to a four-year institution, hired architecture and planning firm Lord Aeck Sargent (LAS) to design the Towers– a 226-bed residence hall that opened in August 2013.

With double occupancy rooms arranged around communal bathrooms and a shared common area, the Towers sounds a lot like a mid-20th century dormitory building. But, there’s a twist.

Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia by Gilbane Building Company

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Article source: Gilbane Building Company

Georgia Tech’s new Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory develops technologies to reduce the earth’s carbon footprint. From design and construction to daily operation, the laboratory seeks to achieve carbon-neutral “net-zero site energy use” (defined as zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually) expressed simply, directly and honestly through a “no frills” design. The lab sets a new standard for sustainable design for buildings of its type by optimizing passive energy technologies, reducing electricity loads, and maximizing the use of renewable energy. It houses a variety of energy research programs requiring large-scale (high-bay) and intermediate-scale (mid-bay) capabilities.

The Gaillard Hall in Dahlonega, Georgia by Lord, Aeck & Sargent

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Lord, Aeck & Sargent

Back in the early 1950s, when noted Atlanta architect Richard L. Aeck stood with his 4-year-old son Tony on a reviewing stand overlooking North Georgia College’s revered drill field at the center of campus, he could not have known that the military barracks he was designing for a site opposite the stand would some 60 years later be restored and rehabilitated by the descendant architecture firm to his own Aeck Associates.

Gaillard Hall at North Georgia College & State University is a good example of international style architecture and was saved from demolition due to its historic significance as the campus’ best example of mid-20th century architecture and its unique proximity and relationship to the historic drill field. © 2012 Jonathan Hillyer
