Located on Centennial Campus near the Park Alumni Center, The Point is the new chancellor’s residence. Designed by Marvin Malecha, the then-dean of the College of Design, the chancellor’s residence was funded with private donations from more than 70 individuals and businesses. The $3 million project was completed in 2011.
The lower level of the residence – about 5,400 square feet – is the “public” portion of the house, where larger receptions and other events can be held. The roughly 3,100-square-foot second floor is the living quarters. Solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling and sustainable materials are included in the design. The entryway ceiling is made from a cypress tree grown in the university’s Hofmann Forest. You’ll also find poplar trim and locally sourced hardwood floors, along with other wood finishings. The eye-catching fixtures use long-lasting LED lights.
