The architectural firm for Bayard Sharp Hall restoration was Homsey Architects of Wilmington, Del. The group worked closely with UD's Department of Art History in drawing up restoration plans. Emphasis was on restoring the building to its original appearance while incorporating plans to make it handicapped-accessible and flexible for use by many University departments. The firm recreated many original details, including a stencil pattern discovered in the building's interior when wood wainscoting was removed.
