Renovation and Revitalization of New Cabell Hall at University of Virginia Completed

Goody Clancy has recently completed a 160,000 SF renovation of New Cabell Hall at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Designed by Eggers and Higgins Architects and constructed in 1950, New Cabell Hall is situated at the end of Thomas Jefferson’s Academic Village on axis with the Rotunda and is considered a contributing building to the historic campus. This comprehensive restoration returns the building to its original intent and houses the modern language departments, media studies, graduate studies, and the Dean of Arts and Sciences. Our work incorporates daylighting strategies and strong connections to the exterior courtyard, which we redesigned to become a building amenity. The renovation was completed and occupied for the Fall semester.
