Glavé & Holmes Architecture is pleased to announce the firm received a John Russell Pope Award from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art for the design of Christopher Newport Hall at Christopher Newport University.

Christopher Newport Hall won the award in the Civic and Institutional Design Category. The 82,000 square foot building is located at the gateway to the heart of campus. The grand staircase, stately dome and columned drum raise the aesthetic above the surrounding structures. Positioned to be the most honorific building of campus, the Corinthian order is employed, which is a step above the lower orders incorporated on previous structures on the Great Lawn.

The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter’s John Russell Pope Awards celebrate excellence in classical architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture. The awards are named for John Russell Pope, best known as the architect of the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. The awards recognize the best work of individuals who contribute to the creation of classical and traditional architecture in the Washington Mid-Atlantic region.

Some of thembers of the Christopher Newport Hall design team were honored at the 2017 John Russell Pope Awards Ceremony at the Cosmos Club on April 21. To learn more about the John Russell Pope award and see the other recipients, visit the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art’s website.
