The home’s design was important to the overall mission. We had to be sensitive to how this affected material needs, the home’s
position on the lot, and how the house fit onto the Furman campus. And, for our readers, we wanted to ensure the home was
comfortable and traditionally styled with contemporary details and that every product was readily available.
Furman recruited architect Scott Johnston of Johnston Design Group and landscape architect Mark Byington of Innocenti and Webel to meet these goals. Scott’s practice in Greenville is centered on Green design. Innocenti and Webel created the master plan for the “new” Furman campus 50 years ago, and the firm continues to provide landscape planning for the university. Both team members understood how to tie this new project in to the existing campus.
