From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Burk-Bergman Boat House

Sept. 28, 2023
The University of Pennsylvania facility was awarded a Special Citation for its exemplary design.

The Burk-Bergman Boathouse is home to the University of Pennsylvania’s three varsity rowing programs. Constructed in 1875, this is one of the oldest boathouses in the country. However, the facility has not been able to keep pace with the program’s demands and needed a comprehensive renovation. The design respects the historic exterior of the structure while completely renovating and modernizing the interior. Reconfigured program spaces include a soaring entrance lobby and grand hall featuring trophies and memorabilia, a lounge and meeting area with integrated audiovisual capabilities, a historic vaulted ceiling, and a restored balcony overlooking the river.
