Bridgewater State University, Crimson Hall, Bridgewater, Massachusetts

This 408 bed residence hall, dining and conference center project is structured in two adjacent buildings, expanding the existing residential life campus westward. The project turns a vast former parking lot into a new residential quad and creates a new pedestrian gateway to the East Campus. The central spine of the project ties into the pedestrian route from West Campus. The north building follows the campus geometry while the south building relates to the adjacent commuter rail line. A pair of splayed seatwalls in conjunction with a triangular landform mitigates the two building geometries creating opportunity for socializing and recreation. Silver LEED Certification – US Green Building Council.
