Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) is a historical staple of Dallas. Since 1924, they have been impacting students with their teaching, instructing, training, and development of servant-leaders. Corgan’s goal when designing the new addition and renovations of Davidson Hall and Stearns Hall was to match that same excellence and prominence in the community. The new design elevates the campus experience by providing a warm, welcoming environment to the students, faculty/staff and visitors. The design of the new addition connects to the historic Davidson Hall with a modern expression of glass and stone that connects with the rest of the masonry campus. The northern glass façade opens up the new addition to the Great Lawn creating an openness and a lightness across the campus, inviting visitors, students, faculty and staff into the new front door of DTS.The project includes renovating 30,350 square feet of two existing 1930’s campus buildings, Davidson & Stearns Hall, and a new 14,000-square-foot addition to Davidson Hall. The program includes: a welcome center; media production; advancement, business; foundation; human resources; conference center; leadership center; presidential suite; campus operations; event services; IT; administrative tech; admissions; alumni/placement; IR/IE; registrar; biblical SAC; communications; creative services; and web development.
