The Lighthouse Student Center

Shandon Baptist Church


Columbia, South Carolina

5,200 SF

Large Flexible Space

The design of the Lighthouse, Shandon Baptist’s new student center is based on a single-story structure that features a large flexible space for a variety of activities all located near the University of South Carolina campus.

Significant Changes

The structure is pulled forward on the site, similar to neighboring buildings in the community, with hidden parking located at the rear of the property. A significant change in grade is negotiated via a series of ramps and terraced patios, all complying with ADA requirements.

The character of the building is a landscape hugging structure with wide overhangs and a hipped roof. Brick veneer and siding complete the palette of “warm” materials.
