Dickinson College Residence Hall Carlisle, PA

On a site that faces the main thoroughfare of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, we designed this new residence hall at Dickinson College to present a formal front to the street and a more casual face to a lawn (and future quadrangle) to the south. Stone facades on the public side match the stone of the historic Dickinson campus across the street.

On the lawn side, we designed an active and light-filled “campus-connected” facade of large windows and weathered-zinc panels. Whereas the front of the building is at home among Dickinson’s historic buildings, the back activates its environs and fills the building with light.

When it is complete the Residence Hall will provide housing for 125 students.

40,500 square feet
Expected completion date – 2018
