Alvernia University | President's Residence Renovation
Just above the bustle of Route 222, beyond a thicket of trees and the Schuykill River, a Georgian-style stone estate links past and future with Alvernia University. Rising 3 ½ stories at its center, the nineteenth-century structure was once home to a local quarry master. Now, it is the President’s House – the first for the University – providing both private living quarters from President Thomas Flynn and public meeting space for community groups and university faculty, staff and students.
Buchart Horn Architects was retained to renovate the historic stone mansion to accommodate its new purpose. We made the building ADA accessible and brought it up to health, safety and building code requirements.
