Shealy Hall

Higher Education - Shealy Hall Project

Shealy Hall at Purdue University’s West Lafayette campus was the third phase of the Windsor Residence Hall renovation. It originally opened in 1937 as Purdue’s second women’s hall, and recently received an extensive HVAC, Plumbing, Fire Protection and Electrical Engineering systems upgrade. This project included partial reconfiguration to update original floorplans.

This $7M, 51,000 sq. ft. ($137/sq. ft.) project was selected into the Historic Preservation category, and modernized the building’s accessibility and systems while retaining historic interior features. It also included a partial reconfiguration to update the original floorplans, and was also featured as an “Outstanding Design” in the August 2012 edition of American School & University’s Educational Interiors Showcase – a national publication for education-related interior design projects.

The historic day rooms were maintained with intricate plaster detailing at ceilings, archways, and crown moldings. The steam radiators were replaced in-situ with new heating and cooling , and the look of the original radiator covers was recreated. Sprinklers were installed and modern lighting technology was retro-fitted into the original fixtures. The first floor public spaces feature quarter-sawn oak woodwork, ornamental plaster and bronze and brass light fixtures. The multihued mosaic tile lobby flooring was retained and informs the color palette throughout the renovated complex. The dining room is repurposed as a study room that showcases its woodwork, colonnade and slate flooring.
