architecture and design


Situated on a very compact infill site, the  microDorm project   faced  a large set of constraints. The program called for a small student dorm to be mainly occupied by upperclassmen and graduate students.  The suite style dorm consisted of five suites holding six students each and two resident advisor apartments. The program also called for a storefront in response to the dorm’s location on a commercial street. In an effort to collect natural light, the suites were grouped in stacks at the front and back of the site and connected by a bar of community space. Cutouts and light wells were developed in an effort to collect more light for the common areas of the suites and draw a connection to the central courtyard.
