Living Building Residence

The regenerative student residential hall is designed to be the largest living-building housing complex on a university campus.

The unit mix of the West Residences offers a variety of living opportunities, from efficient micro-units and studio units to one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.

The nine micro-units have no kitchens, instead inviting residents to use the common kitchens in the communal hubs. The micro-units will be grouped together, in close proximity to the West portal, across two floors, and will establish an intentional community within the Living Village.

Other unit types will be positioned alongside the micro-units, so as to not silo the micro-units into specific buildings or floors. Because of their location, the micro-units will be at the center of the community zones within the Village.

The largest number of units will be of the studio type. Two-bedroom units will occupy a unique location in the base of the East terrace, where, as the site slope drops in elevation, a lower level of that building is exposed. The larger footprint will be geared toward family occupancy.
