Project Statement

Phi Delta Theta Fraternity House at the University of Arkansas

Yeary Lindsey Architects was hired in 2008 to renovate the 20,000sf Phi Delta Theta Fraternity House at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

The $3.4 million construction included new infrastructure requirements such as a new mechanical system, bathrooms, commercial kitchen, fire suppression system and fire stairs. Architecturally, porches were added on the exterior, and interior spaces were reconfigured to allow for ease of circulation, daylighting and to encourage interaction among the members.

Casual lounges were added and the dining hall was demolished and rebuilt as a two story vaulted space which is overlooked by a second story lounge.

Natural wood finishes are used throughout the project to provide a warm and durable finish.

The project was completed in the fall of 2009.
