New Student Housing
Colorado School of Mines
Golden, Colorado
This new 420-bed freshman residence hall is the first phase of a major student housing master plan developed by NAC and AMD Architects for this nationally acclaimed engineering university. The project is designed around smaller communities of 30-40 students that feature study and social lounges, community restrooms and special areas of quiet and repose — all with panoramic views of the mountains beyond.
The first floor is dedicated to creating a hub in this student housing “neighborhood.” There will be a fitness center, café with outdoor seating, a collaboration makerspace, bike/ski storage and repair center, a large lounge and a game room.
The building form opens up to the only natural landscaping area on campus that features a stream and mature vegetation. These have been preserved and enhanced to create areas for students to rest and unwind. The outdoor spaces are designed to encourage a wide variety of activities from volleyball and dining, to outdoor yoga contemplation.
The project is designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification and will open in the spring of 2020.
