Utilizing the design-build resources of Clayco and LJC to meet the owner’s fast-paced schedule without compromising design quality.
Victory Village is designed to provide exceptional residential accommodations for the growing student population of Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). SCAD Victory Village is a student housing project, including Sail and Surf at Victory Village, which is LJC’s third design-build project with the college. The suite-style residential halls expand over two blocks in Savannah’s Historic Streetcar District. Features of the buildings include a parking deck, a mix of four-bed and two-bed suites with kitchenettes, and studio spaces. The buildings also feature outdoor amenities and common support spaces, including lounges on each floor, laundry rooms, study rooms, art studios at the street level, computer labs, and resident life offices.
The fifth floor of SCAD Victory is set back to adhere to the city’s zoning requirements, and its façade is broken into smaller segments to break down its scale. The mass of the buildings complements the surrounding residential houses while gracefully fitting into the neighborhood. The exterior consists of brick, aluminum windows, metal panels, stucco, wood, and board-formed concrete. The design and construction utilize the entire design-build resources of Clayco / LJC to meet the owner’s fast-paced schedule without compromising design quality.
