Onyx provided architectural and interior design services for an eight-story, 217,000 SF structure to accommodate approximately 525 students in 151 apartment-style housing units. A number of pedestrian-oriented urban design elements were incorporated including a two-story building base with a pedestrian-scale façade and articulated upper levels. The housing complex contains a number of amenities geared toward students including a gym, a business/computer center, entertainment + THX® room, spa/pool and a welcome center. An inviting multi-level courtyard, where residents can gather for informal social and learning interaction, is at the heart of the structure. This project provides a dynamic live/study/work environment for students. Fast track processes and close collaboration with owner, builder and consultants enabled Onyx to develop the project design and construction documents in five months.
