The buildings are organized as a series of 4-story courtyard buildings sharing a public gallery space with a 7-story tower. The towers flank the primary east west and north south connections to campus and serve as thresholds to the gallery spaces with their entries to the residential buildings. Each of these buildings is comprised of 4 floors of 40 student communities sharing a social lounge with the adjoining floor.
Together, the 4 floors of student suites gain a shared identity through the color of their respective courtyard elevations, thereby promoting an individual identity for each building within the life of the academic village.
The project is designed to respect the demands of the climate and environment through its orientation, building envelope, mechanical systems, and harnessing of breezes. Devices such as canopies will shade outdoor public spaces, which in turn temper the environment around the buildings. Coupled with material selection and efficiencies of the building, these strategies to reduce heat gain have achieved a LEED Silver rating for the complex.
