Abstract/Artist Statement

The goal of this project is to design a new Greek house for the Theta Chi Fraternity of University of the Pacific as part of their new 2050 expansion plan. The fraternity house to be designed is intended for use by a single fraternity, but will become a part of the larger Greek community that is currently on campus. It will contribute greatly to the Greek experience on campus as it more closely knits together the individual Greek organizations on campus. It features a total of thirty-six beds distributed between ten single bedrooms and thirteen double bedrooms. Communal study and recreational areas will be included on all floors, although the first floor is entirely communal while the second and third floors are primarily residential. Two different designs are completed for the structure of the three story building, one of timber as well as an alternative design using reinforced concrete (RC). A cost comparison is also completed as a means of contrasting the feasibility of each design. The project includes a RC basement and site drainage using low impact development methods. The first and second floors of the building are 4,900 square feet each, while the third floor will be 3,900 square feet and the basement will be 3,900 square feet, totaling 17,640 square feet. The building is aligned with University of the Pacific’s design criteria and is designed to be cost effective and provide sustainability features for energy and materials; all ADA regulations and standards will also be observed.
