Completed in August 2016, this 172,000-square-foot building is located on North Street on the IUPUI campus. This facility provides 700 beds for students and spaces to support student life activities, fitness programs, a computer lab, game rooms and laundry. The building features a state-of-the-art multipurpose media room and two classrooms that will each accommodate 40 students.
The new residence hall reflects the sleek, modern style of the IUPUI campus by use of brick, glass and precast accents and offer two residential wings varying in height — one four stories and the other six stories. This design allows more natural light into the semi-enclosed courtyard as well as the large windows of each sleeping room.
A centralized tower connects the wings and house community spaces on the first floor. The tower is expressed architecturally with extensive glass and roof elements for a dramatic sense of entry and offer a preview of the activities inside.
IDO Incorporated provided interior design and FF&E services for this new addition to the IUPUI campus.
