Campus Student Life
This redevelopment consists of an 8 story residential building and includes 79 student housing units on the UW-Madison campus.
Units range in size from one to five bedroom apartments. The redevelopment also includes the relocation and preservation of a 1930’s masonry chapel, St. Francis House. The new apartments are responsive to the surrounding neighborhood, which poses unique challenges of tying academic and religious buildings with a variety of architectural styles. The development is sensitive to the solar impacts and view lines to the neighboring church and bell tower.
The building is a post-tensioned concrete structure with two levels of under-building parking. The contemporary exterior skin is a combination of stone, metal panels, and spandrel glazing. Metal balconies and railings articulate the facade and create usable open space for the residents.
