About This Project

Montgomery House established a new home for 500 students at Savannah College of Art and Design. The project, including the adjacent 400 space parking structure, was accomplished from start of design to occupancy in an impressive eighteen months. This significant construction project transformed a former industrial site into an active micro campus by carefully sequencing the addition of residential, dining and parking functions to support an existing academic facility. At completion, vehicular traffic was isolated and the existing academic building was linked with the new student housing facility giving the campus a vitality that reinforces the artistic and academic goals of the institution.
