SPECIALIZED HOUSING San Joaquin Villages ARCHITECT: SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL LLP, LORCAN O'HERLIHY ARCHITECTS, KEVIN DALY ARCHITECTS, KIERAN TIMBERLAKE LOCATION: GOLETA, CALIFORNIA PROJECT SIZE: 14.6 ACRES; 313,000 SQUARE FEET Built around an existing residence hall at the University of California, Santa Barbara, the new San Joaquin Villages intro- duce apartment-style housing for more than 1,000 students, along with staff and faculty residences, dining commons, a convenience store, and other amenities. SOM in collaboration with Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects and Kevin Daly Architects designed the various residences in order to infuse the project with architectural diversity. The design team created a series of neighborhoods, each with a mix of housing types and amenities, located within a 10-minute off-street bike ride from the center of campus. Each new facility is visually distinct, but all maintain a uniform sequence that balances efficiency, creativity, and inclusivity. Plazas, recreational facilities, and courtyard gardens are added key components designed to enhance student life. All the new residential construction has achieved LEED for Homes Platinum certification. The site plan, which includes a new stormwater management system to protect local wet- lands, is also targeting LEED for Neighborhood Development Gold certification.—SOM ADDITIONAL CREDITS ARCHITECTS: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLP (San Joaquin Towers), Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects (San Joaquin North Villages, Clusters 1 and 3), Kevin Daly Architects (San Joaquin North Villages, Clusters 2 and 4), Kieran Timberlake (Dining Commons); DESIGN CONTRACTOR: Harper Construction; LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT: Tom Leader Studio; CIVIL ENGINEER: Stantec (post-design development phase), Sherwood Engineers (up to design development phase); STRUCTURAL ENGINEER: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (Tower Villages), Nabih Yousef Associates (North Villages); MEP ENGINEER: BuroHappold; PHOTOGRAPHER: Bruce Damonte 34 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM VOL. 3, 2019 AWARDS
