    “It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with Patterhn Ives in the design process for the renovation of Ellis Hall.  They are historically aware, innovative, sensitive to cost issues and faculty needs, extremely detail oriented, and they are exceptionally good communicators and listeners.”    Dr. Julie C. Combs, Music Department Head, Missouri State University

    “This project is a fine example of a sensitive and rigorous renovation.  It breathes new life into an existing building, proving that if thoughtfully done, interior and exterior renovations can give new and valuable life to often unappreciated mid-century modern structures.”    2018 Fay Jones Alumni Design Award Jury Chair, Roy Decker, FAIA
