STATUSIn Progress

Sited at the confluence of three major thoroughfares in Westwood Village, the new 17-story building forms a prominent gateway to the UCLA campus. We integrated the building’s dense program within the scale of the neighborhood, providing 1,167 beds within 1 and 2-bedroom configurations.

We organized common spaces on the ground floor to engage with the surrounding student population and create a public interface. Students can relax and hang out in a private garden along the northern elevation of the building, while an outward-facing open green space promotes a larger sense of a public square in the neighborhood, creating a place for the whole community to enjoy.
