SPECIALIZED HOUSING Skyline Residence Hall ARCHITECT: WILLIAM RAWN ASSOCIATES, ARCHITECTS, INC. LOCATION: WALTHAM, MASSACHUSETTS PROJECT SIZE: 54,000 SQUARE FEET This 164-bed, 54,000-square-foot residence hall serves a broad campus planning goal for Brandeis University of linking outlying buildings with the heart of campus. A key challenge of sophomore retention on cam- pus provided an opportunity to create an attractive housing type that encourages interaction and community within a broader campus com- munity, while rethinking a traditional double- and single-bedroom layout. Informal gathering spaces with access to student kitchens meet the needs of many student groups across campus. Through the use of a fully geothermal heating, cooling, and domes- tic hot water system, coupled with a rooftop photovoltaic system and a high-performance façade, the building is a highly sustainable living option on campus. —William Rawn Associates, Architects, Inc.
