To respond to Dickinson College’s historic campus, we built the High Street façade of limestone. On the rear, a façade of standing seam zinc and large windows responds to a more casual lawn (and future quadrangle) to the south. The LEED Platinum building’s E-shaped plan creates a pair of small courtyards and breaks up the building’s massing. Circulation spaces—all of which have windows for access to natural light and views—double as social spaces with seating and study nooks. The building has helped re-center student life on campus by attracting juniors and seniors back to living at the college.
The building houses 130 students.
