Bozeman, Mont.
— Montana State University will begin construction this year on a 400-bed, 120,000-square-foot residence hall that the university will finance and own. It will be complete in fall 2016. The hall’s design team of Schlenker & McKittrick Architects and NAC|Architecture will focus on place-making in what the firms call a “front door/back yard” concept that complements the adjacent Roskie Beach recreation space while fostering pedestrian traffic with a pass-through design. The four-story structure is specifically designed to maximize solar orientation and views to the mountains, while offering amenities such as a two-story atrium/main lounge, secure bike storage, and even space for ski waxing. Other features include resident meeting spaces, spaces to accommodate collaborative academic work, and a kitchen area for group functions. Langlas & Associates is the general contractor.
