The new 520 bed first-year student housing at Kennesaw State University is part of an ambitious, multi-phased housing plan aimed at reinvigorating the on-campus residential experience.
Working closely with the university staff, students and foundation, CCCA developed a program and architecture designed to foster academic, social and community relationships. Following that 2018 exercise, the university proceeded with the Phase I building plan.
The scope of the first phase of work includes a combination one and two-bed suites, staff apartment, common spaces and a small café. As a means to foster community and student interaction, modern and appealing environments with natural light and views were important considerations in the design of group study, collaboration and socialization spaces. Our branding and environmental graphics group worked with housing staff to develop an extensive environmental graphics package to promote community and communicate culture.
