Located on the south-eastern edge of campus, the design of this living-learning community takes into consideration optimal views to the surrounding natural environment. The building is designed as a series of small communities grouped together in a larger double-wing building. At the center of the wings is a pivot, allowing for the design to fit within the given landscape and provide an entrance. To break up the long facade, curtain walls were placed to allow natural light to enter the corridor and provide small study spaces outside of the student’s rooms.

 

Taking the organization of the dorm-style layout and apartment-style layout, the Hybrid-Style unit is arranged to bring privacy with two separate bedrooms while providing a shared communal kitchenette and restroom. The bedrooms include two work-spaces and two closet spaces, in addition to shelving located in the kitchenette.

 

Overall, the architecture of the building is intended to fit within the given context of St. Thomas More College, both ethos and site.
