this residence hall is a place of layered interactions. there is a suite system wherein a group of students will have a core group of people that they live with. but these units all stem from a central circulation core that is widened to allow for various programs to take place within—ranging from pure circulation to quick conversation to social gathering, or just solitary lounging and studying. this circulation core acts as a sort of living room present in single-family homes.
the units themselves have their own congregation points, where students can interact more intimately with those they know better. these individual units have their own laundries and kitchens, and each room has its own private bathroom. essentially, each unit is like an apartment, yet there is no physical separation between the apartment and the circulation core. this is to foster connections between different micro-communities.
