intended to be a solution to any problem, but offers infor-
mation from which a solution may be devised.
The Board of Regents, as the decision making body for
The University of Florida, has contracted the programing of
a faculty club for the University of Florida campus. The
project will be funded through donations to the Florida
Foundation from alumni and faculty, and these donations will
be matched by the State of Florida. The club is seen as a
positive element which shall be used to attract new faculty
members, and reward existing faculty members.
The club is seen as a place for social functions,
lounging, eating, and both formal and informal meetings.
It is seen as a place for a merging of ideas, where Historian
may meet Physicist, or Accountant may meet Philosopher.
The Faculty Club is seen as both a formal social gathering
place on campus, and an informal place for a meeting of the

designed to be compatible with the existing building.
EXPLANATION OF SPACES
Main Dining Room. The main dining room will be the
main gathering area for faculty and guests to eat. It will
need to seat about 200 people. It will need direct access
to the kitchen and reception area. The dining room may be
placed on the first floor. This will allow easy access, and
keep constant activity at the ground level.
Main Dining Room 3400 sf. This may be thought of as
one large room, or two or three smaller rooms.
Kitchen. The kitchen will be the main food prepera-
tion area in the building. It will need direct access to
the exterion for deliveries. It will need direct access to
dining rooms on the first and second floors. It is suggested
that the kitchen be located on the first floor for the pur-
pose of food delivery and preparation.
Kitchen 3100 sf. This should be located in one area.
Reception area/ Circulation A reception area is need-
ed directly adjacent to the main dining room. This area
could be thought of as part of the circulation system, and
it should be near some form of vertical circulation.
Reading Room. The reading room is a semi-private
space where faculty members may go to quietly read or study.
this area could also have provisions for small quiet con-
Reading Room 600 sf. This space could be thought of
as one large room or as a series of small study rooms. It
is suggested they be placed in the second floor.
Small Dining Rooms. The small dining rooms are intend-
ed to serve as overflow spaces for the main dining room, as
well as serving as areas for small or specific groups for
lunch or dinner.
Small Dining Rooms 2400 sf total. This may be broken
down into four or six smaller areas. The dining rooms should
seat about 120 people total.

alcohol. It will serve as a place for social conversation
and an alternate waiting area for the dining rooms. The

tion, and should have easy access to the dining rooms.

Conference Rooms. The conference rooms in the faculty
club will be available for use by any group associated with
the University Faculty. These conference rooms should be

second floor. This suggestion is based on the idea that the
first floor is too public for this activity to occour.
Conference Rooms two rooms at 500 sf each, 1000 sf
total. These two rooms should be adjacent to each other.
Guest Rooms. The guest rooms in the faculty club are
intended to be used for interim faculty members. These
faculty members may be visiting campus for a short term,
or this may become a residence for an entire semester.
Guest Rooms 6 at 350 sf each these would be organized
as uxury hotel rooms. 2 at 500 sf each these rooms would
provide visiting faculty with a more spacious place to
spend an extended period of time. 3100 sf total.
Guest Lounge. The guest lounge will provide the
visitors, staying in the guest rooms, a living room for
quiet socializing and relaxing. It will become the common
space for the guest rooms.
