“Nobel Halls” Student Residence & Activity Center at SUNY Stony Brook | NY
Our design of this 600-bed new student residence responds to today’s students’ desire for transparency and connection to the academic community. Six-bed suites are centered around living rooms with optimized natural lighting and views, a sustainable strategy utilized throughout the facility. The project also includes the Center for Global Studies and Human Development which houses offices, seminar rooms, a café/lounge on the first floor, and a 350-person multifunction room on the second floor.
Additional sustainable features include a highly insulated building envelope, occupancy sensors to control lighting and the HVAC, and the use of rapidly renewable materials such as linoleum flooring and agrifiber door cores. The residence opened to students in Fall 2010 and achieved LEED Gold certification in 2012.
