Project Description

Four new residence halls (259 beds, 106,000 s.f.) complete the northeast quadrant of the Grinnell College campus through a contemporary interpretation of the College's traditional loggias and continuous linear building edges.

The strong linear form of the new buildings creates a permeable edge that engages the town of Grinnell. The campus side is animated by an alternating pattern of two-story lounges and sun-filled outdoor rooms connected by a loggia along the entire length.

Native Iowa limestone was used throughout the project, making reference to a traditional local building material - in fact it is the same stone used to support the dome of Iowa's state capitol building.

“The amount of information that is at your finger tips is unbelievable.”
