On September 1st, members of the Glavé & Holmes team joined hundreds of students, faculty, and staff to take part in the ribbon cutting of the first four houses of the new Greek Village at Christopher Newport University (CNU).

Glavé & Holmes developed the design for a Greek Village of ten fraternity and sorority houses, providing an identifiable home on campus for the Greek organizations that is centered around a common green space. The first four houses are arranged radially at the end of the green space to create a community atmosphere among the houses and a shared “front yard.” The common space serves as a home for annual events and traditions, which lie at the heart of Greek Life at CNU. Each house has a unique façade to express their individuality within the Greek community. The facilities offer a combination of single and double rooms with shared bathrooms. Each house includes laundry rooms, study spaces, kitchen and chapter rooms. The project was designed in compliance with VEES (Virginia Energy Conservation and Environmental Standards) certification.

The ribbon cutting came on the heels of The Princeton Review’s ranking of CNU as #2 for Best College Dorms in the U.S. G&HA has worked on multiple residence halls at CNU, including Warwick River Hall and Rappahannock River Hall.
