A student's residential experience is central to her or his educational experience. Housing quality and character influences recruitment and student satisfaction, and also impacts the campus community and the overall institutional mission.There is no one solution to an institution's residential needs. We work with each client to define a carefully calibrated program and to achieve a compelling and contextually-appropriate design. At the same time, we stay current with contemporary housing trends, helping clients identify desirable elements from a broad range of alternatives. This work involves a careful understanding of student habits and preferences, and of institutional norms and expectations.
