The design of the new Stem Residence Hall, an eight story structure housing 720 students, is guided by the fundamental goal of fostering connections among its residents and those who are using the building as a living learning environment. Encouraging community in built form led us to develop a site plan and building scheme which: unifies the Hilltop Site into a new residential campus; develops a lively main floor of “all house” uses and academic program spaces having visibility to exterior gathering places and pathways; and organizing student living floors in ways that cluster common uses as hubs of activity.
The project features a green roof, supporting living and learning research programs.
