2019 North Atlantic Conference – Developing New Typologies for Innovative Group Housing in Under-utilized Spaces

Presented by Karen Fairbanks, Christopher Lee, Jason Roberts

This presentation will demonstrate how an innovative new typology for student small-group living has transformed and expanded group living options, locating student housing in surprising, incongruous campus spaces. Lawrence University successfully prototyped new group housing typologies in under-utilized residential spaces, supporting its goal to be fully residential without adding campus buildings. You will learn how the expanded project team, tasked with thinking outside the box, invented a new housing typology uniquely connected to the existing campus culture and the site.
