Project Description

 

In collaboration with architecture firm Goody Clancy, Mekus Tanager assisted the University of Chicago in developing a new South Campus Residence Hall and dining facility.

 

Designed to reflect the housing style of the campus with a more modern approach to student living, there are eight “houses” encompassed in the building, with approximately 100 students per house. The facility includes 800 beds, a 542 seat dining facility incorporating the existing Burton-judson dining commons, an underground loading dock, and a “green roof”.

 

To help create a sense of community for the students, each house has its own identity and this is reflected by the color schemes and furniture selection. Inspiration for house identities and color schemes was drawn from impressionist artwork including Monet, Cezanne, and Van Gogh.
