Creating a new gateway to campus, this residential complex integrates student housing with a mail center, a campus store with a lounge space, and game rooms. Characteristic New England brick structures with locally-sourced granite and brick are accentuated by a gabled roof protruding over the façade below. Tall vertical glass corners allow light into the common spaces and provide views of the campus and surrounding city. The penthouse level features an exposed cathedral wood ceiling and large windows – reminiscent of a treehouse - which entices residents with stunning panoramic views. A new landscaped quad complete with rain gardens and permeable paving complements the space and encourages the community to interact with campus.
