Loyola Hall serves as the new front door to the Strake Jesuit campus and houses the administrative offices, classrooms, a student communal space, and conference rooms. Clark Condon designed outdoor terraces with artificial turf and custom seat walls for flexible programming such as events, outdoor classrooms, and covered seating areas for faculty and students. A collegiate experience is emulated through the main entrance framed with elevated planter retaining walls and lit banners. Vehicular circulation and the arrival sequence was updated with the installation of custom signage blade walls, a guard house, and an additional student drop-off lane. The parking lot adjacent to the Parsley Center was expanded and redesigned to accommodate underground detention, minimizing the impact to the campus and the existing live oak trees.
