architecture+ completed a Schematic Design Study for renovations to this residence hall. This $11 million project is the first in a series of four building renovations planned for the suite-style residence halls on the SUNY Oneonta Campus.
The interior renovations will provide revised floor plans to improve comfort, aesthetics, privacy, and livability. The addition of student lounges, computer resource rooms, a recreation room, seminar room, and a fitness center will add to the amenities provided to students. The gut rehabilitation of this residence hall will also allow for the complete replacement of all finishes and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The proposed work will bring the facility in compliance with current building codes and exceed handicapped accessibility requirements.
The building exterior look will be upgraded with the replacement of widows and by the addition of a new, more welcoming main entrance.
The design will save energy and natural resources and will achieve LEED Silver requirements.
