The University of Chicago Campus North Residence Hall and the Frank and Laura Baker Dining Commons

STUDIO GANG ARCHITECTS | TOM HARRIS & STEVE HALL PHOTOGRAPHY

This new residence hall in the core of the University's Hyde Park campus was designed with enhanced quality of life, community and sustainability in mind. The space is divided into eight 100-student houses, each with a three-story lounge. A dining commons and reading room further respond to student needs while offering great views of the outdoors and the Chicago skyline. Throughout each house, common areas are populated with a wide range of seating and surfaces give students a variety of ways to work and interact.

The building, designed by Jeanne Gang, adds to the campus' rich architectural legacy, including landmarks by Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Helmut Jahn and Frank Lloyd Wright.
