Carnegie Mellon University East Campus Dormitory/Dining Hall

Carnegie Mellon University East Campus Dormitory/Dining Hall

|   Pittsburgh PA
Overview: This innovative 5-story mixed-use residential/dining facility accommodates 315 beds, grouped in various sized suites, along with a 400-person full-service dining facility. Amenities include an enclosed public loggia, public function rooms, and basement-level locker and training rooms. Located on the south side of the east campus, the building encloses an elevated terrace overlooking the new stadium and creates a new pedestrian street to the south.

The East Campus Dormitory and Dining Hall is based on the award-winning, first place submission to an invited design competition held by the University to reconfigure the entire 26-acre east campus. The University’s goal was to create a cohesive framework of buildings and spaces, incorporating a new multi-function student center, athletic stadium, fields, student residences, and structured parking.

Award for Excellence, Boston Society of Architects/American Institute of Architects for the East Campus Project.

Citation for Urban Design and Planning, 36th Annual Progressive Architecture Awards for the Campus Master Plan and design of selected buildings.

“We commend the designers for their commitment and attentiveness to the needs of the University. As a result of their collaborative efforts we have taken a major step in revitalizing the Carnegie Mellon University campus to the same high level of architectural distinction embodied in the original Henry Hornbostel buildings of the main campus.” – Paul Tellers, University Architect
