The Project

The SBTS Mullins Complex is one of the original buildings on the original campus designed by James Gamble Rogers and the Olmsted brothers in 1929. The restoration of the building and relocation of the seminary’s Boyce College to the center of campus create a residential college nested in a predominantly graduate-level seminary.

While the exterior work was constructed to restore the historic details of the original building, the interior was gutted and modernized to reflect the current and future needs of the residents.

The student center includes lounges, an amphitheater, a recording studio, a climbing wall, two student kitchen/dining areas and conference rooms. The diversity of the space provides a social hub for many interests, encouraging collaboration and exposure to all aspects of student life. The recording studio with the garage door is the corner piece of the music-centric seminary with regular concerts bringing the campus together.
