Sigma Kappa Sorority House
The interior design for the new home of Sigma Kappa Sorority at Marquette University was led by Deep River Partners and part of a joint collaboration between developer Cedar Square LLC and Saab Architects.
The casual French elegance of the house was inspired by the Sigma Kappa Pinterest page and incorporated throughout finishes, furniture, rugs and window treatments. The Sigma Kappa colors of maroon and lavender are thoughtfully woven throughout the palette.
In a home for 24 college women, each space was designed to be flexible for a variety of uses from private meetings to group study. Lounge areas were generously sized, have plenty of natural light and include a selection of comfortable furniture. Display area for composites, awards and chapter memorabilia were designed throughout the house. Bedrooms were left neutral to allow for individual personalization. Private and more casual spaces were designed in the back of the house and on upper floors. The receiving and formal spaces were near the front.
While maintaining the design themes, durability and longevity were top considerations in the selection of finishes and furnishings.
