Ayers Saint Gross is the master planner and housing designer for three phases of housing each with 400 beds for a total of 1200 beds. As part of Phase I implementation, Ayers Saint Gross designed an ideal living-learning environment for the 168,000 GSF hall. The hall's design and landscape creates an active public plaza, as well as a gateway into an interior courtyard that provides intimate outdoor space for residents. The ground floor includes a cafeteria, post office, market place, recreation space, multi-purpose space with adjacent kitchen, classrooms, conference rooms, offices, laundry and a staff apartment. This mix of activity improves campus life by promoting interaction among students. Completed with Clark Nexsen as Architect-of-Record.
