Residence Hall Community

The University of Miami-Ohio held a design competition for  three new residence halls on their Western Campus.  Currently under construction, each building, although part of the same family, has its own personality and adopts a variety of architectural styles and materials from the existing Western Campus. The selected design calls for a new pond and plaza to create a visual link to a new dining facility. The simple, yet elegant buildings are sited to tie all active community locations together and instill a sense of  local identity. As a residence hall community, each building is connected and understood as a contemporary, vibrant family expressed through materials and details. Gwynn Zivic is the lead designer on the project, working with Whiting Turner and CR Architecture + Design. Completion is scheduled for the summer of 2014.
