COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY – MORRIS A. SHAPIRO RESIDENCE HALL

New York, New York

IBI Group – Gruzen Samton successfully met the university’s directive to relate the new 17-story structure to nearby campus buildings and the residential neighborhood, by means of creative exterior design choices. A combined residence hall and student services facility consists of two nine-story wings, which preserve the existing street wall, and a 17-story structure. The building’s massing diminishes its visual and physical impact on neighboring residential buildings along 114th street. The facility includes a black box theater, music practice rooms, rehearsal space, student offices, and a computer center, amenities which are accessible to the entire university community.
