March 01, 2010 |


 Enotah Hall

Constructed with regional and recycled materials, Enotah Hall at Young Harris (Ga.) College spans 62,500 sf and rises to three stories. Housing 200 students, the $16 million facility, built by Atlanta-based Hardin Construction, has won LEED Silver certification. Architect Lord, Aeck & Sargent designed deep roof overhangs to shade the upper terrace, and the windows of the residential wings are oriented so as to increase daylighting while minimizing glare.
