A freshman dormitory for 124 students was designed as the architectural gateway to the historic campus of the California College of the Arts. In addition to two levels of below-ground parking, the structure contains a storefront gallery, event space with terrace, and student lounges on each floor. A three story backlit glass “lantern” showcases student work and serves as a beacon for pedestrians and cars traveling along the Broadway axis.
