New tudor gothic residence hall gives students modern living quarters
Work recently commenced on a new residence and event hall on the campus of the University of Puget Sound. The new hall will allow more upper-level students to live on campus in Tacoma, Wash., and provide space for four residential academic communities, including humanities and environmental policy. The 55,000-sf building, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson of Seattle, will have 11 student “houses.” Each house will contain nine to 14 individual bedrooms surrounding a great room kitchen and living area, as well as study and gathering areas, bathrooms, and laundry facilities. The Building Team also includes: Skanska, general contractor; AHBL, civil and structural engineer; WSP Flack & Kurtz, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection; Berger Partnership, landscape architect; and Candela, llighting design.
