Impact 360 Institute’s Gap Year is an academic nine-month Christian worldview and leadership experience situated in Pine Mountain, Ga., for students 18 to 20 CAPACITY100COST PER SQ FT$281.00FEATURED IN2015 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYWork in Progress old. Its mission is to equip members of future generations to become Christ-centered servant leaders. Credo Design is working with Impact 360 to design a new campus to accommodate the growth of the undergraduate program and a newly added master’s degree program.
The project will develop 23 acres of a 66-acre greenfield site, which consists of a 36,000-square-foot commons building, two residence halls and a facility maintenance building. The commons building will contain the primary functions for admissions, administration and academics, including five active learning classrooms, dining facilities and student-interaction space. The highlight of the design is a central outdoor courtyard that promotes transparency for the building and enables the occupants to see into the various zones of the facility.
Each of the residence halls, designed suite-style in a “pod” arrangement, is designed for 64 students and six staff. The residence halls are designed to promote community and fellowship at various levels.
