The North Campus Residential Expansion at Cornell University is a 776,000-square-foot student life residential complex for first-year and sophomore students. Providing over 2,000 beds, the residences are organized as 3- to 5-story courtyard buildings that engage and respond to the adjacent campus, site conditions, and help foster serendipitous collegial exchanges crucial to student life. Central to this complex is a 1,000-seat dining hall that offers a variety of micro-restaurants to enhance the student life experience. Red and grey terracotta masonry walls complement the neighboring north campus buildings by acting as modern re-interpretations of the existing dorms. Residential lounges capture campus views and serve as beacons and a highly transparent ground floor promotes outward social interaction with the entire community. Lake source cooling and rooftop photovoltaics assist in achieving LEED Gold certification.
