Woven into the generous campus landscape fabric is a network of smaller, intimate gathering spaces designed for the social needs of contemporary undergraduate life. Within this context lies the central courtyard of the new college residences. Mediating significant site grade changes and programmatic challenges, this lively outdoor space focuses on fostering diversity and community engagement, while connecting the past and future of the college.

To achieve the desired paving pattern, two colors of 8” City Park Pavers™ were used: Winter Marvel and Midnight Sky in the Umbriano® finish. This finish resembles natural granite with the proprietary ColorFusion™ Technology and the built-in EasyClean™ Stain Resistance help to ensure this space is easier to maintain. This unique patterning creates the intricate, modern and stimulating pixelated pattern.
