Gamma Phi Beta

Concerned that a simple paint job might not be the best solution to improving the appearance of their very industrial looking chapter house, Rowland Design was consulted to help find a more permanent and higher performing solution. The modest project budget and need to phase the project over at least two summers led us to a recladding approach utilizing color-impregnated cement board panels with aluminum trim. The solution gives the house a new and brighter appearance while also improving thermal performance and reducing required maintenance. The project also included new signage and a comprehensive phaseable landscape plan.
Upon completion of the exterior work, Gamma Phi Beta retained Rowland to renovate the interior living spaces. Using a palette reflective of the sorority colors, brown and pink hues transform the living room, foyer and sitting areas into fresh, contemporary spaces. Bold draperies, patterned wall covering and feminine accents, complete the update.
