Salem State University, Marsh Hall

Salem, Massachusetts

This residential hall project is located adjacent to a sensitive tidal salt marsh. Stormwater from the project is sent to a large, linear bio-swale with native grasses to be filtered and given the chance to percolate back into the ground. The bioswale is lined with stone-filled gabions and extends through a new quadrangle giving an architectural expression to a natural process and educating residents to the process of treating stormwater. A 10,000 square foot green roof extends over the lower level dining hall, lending a green view to the rooms above. LEED Gold Certification - US green Building Council.
