FACULTY CLUB
PROGRAM










introduction

















INTRODUCTION


This document provides information pertinent to the design

of a faculty club for the University of Florida campus.

Requirements and needs will be outlined for consideration

in the fabrication of a design. This program presents both

subjective and objective material for use as a guide to

design.



This program is a collection of facts and ideas, probings

and judjments, which remains open ended. It is not intended

to be a solution to any problem, but offers information

from which a successful solution may be devised.



This program is prepared to allow an existing facility to

adapt to a new use. This should be considered as the pro-

gram is analized.











need










EXISTING NEED


The total number of faculty at the University of Florida,

according to 1984-- 85 records, is 3405. This number

includes university colleges, health center, law center,

and IFAS faculty members. Currently there is no specific

facility on campus to meet the social and professional

needs of hte University of Florida faculty.



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. 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 ones.



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 among fellow educators.

The faculty club is seen as both a formal social gathering

place on campus, and an informal place for a meeting of the

minds to occur.










guidelines









GENERAL CONSTRUCTION GUIDELINES


Floyd Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic

Places. Adapting the internal spaces of the building into

a faculty club is a logical and compatible use. The fabric

of the original building must be considered during both the

design and construction phases of the project.



EXTERIOR CONSTRUCTION

Any construction on the visible exterior of the original

1912 building must be completed in accordance with The

Secretary of the Interior's Standards for rehabilitation.

New construction, which may be part of this program, should

be compatible in scale, material, color, and detail to the

original building. Connections between new and original

construction should be sensitive and should not obstruct

major elements of the historic building.



INTERIOR CONSTRUCTION

The existing interior construction has been modified since

the original 1912 design. The facility was designed as an

agriculture classroom and laboratory building. The mater-

ials used, and spaces allocated in this building are proba-

bly not suited to the new function of a faculty club. These

points allow the design of the new facility to adopt new



















space planning. Spatially the rooms should remain near the

heights originally designed, thus returning the windows to

full height use. Windows should not be blocked by new con-

struction except when unavoidable. Any original or early

interior materials which will be savedmust be restored in

accordance with The Secretary of the Interior's Standards

for Rehabilitation.



TECHNICAL SYSTEMS CONSTRUCTION

All structural,electrical, HVAC, and plumbing systems must

be analized. These systems must be designed to be updated

to meet the present codes for the new use. Fire egress

system must be designed for the facility. Seperate fire

stairs should be considered to allow the original 1912 con-

cept of the monumental central open stair tower may be

used in the new facility.

FACULTY CLUB: FLOYD HALL ADAPTIVE USE

PROJECT STATEMENT



The program specified a need for spaces related to a faculty

social club for the University of Florida campus. The func-

tions of this club included the following:

Lounge
Reading Room - During evening hours this
space becomes a quiet lounge.
Dining for 200 - Divided into an intimate
area and a larger group dining area.
Kitchen Support Spaces
Six Conference Rooms
Director Office and Support Spaces

SOLUTION CONCEPT

The solution was to introduce a floating system of support

spaces for the faculty club within the walls of the historic

building. This allows maximum light and views through windows.

the non-symmetrical form relates to the spatial needs of the

program.
