Bryan College Townhouse Apartments
In the Bryan College residences, students are able to enjoy private, single bedrooms while sharing common spaces such as living rooms and kitchens with a small number of other students in a suite. In older university housing facilities, students live in large high rises with many residential rooms and bathrooms, showers, and kitchens shared by many students. In this project, LGA provided several small groups of accessible, efficient, and private suites in a mid-rise building setting surrounding open spaces for pedestrian accessibility, recreation, and parking. This strategy allowed the townhouse-style units to be built using conventional wood-frame and brick veneer building systems as well as giving students a more intimate living setting.
These townhouse style apartments house six students in each unit. Building A has five units, including one unit that is fully handicapped accessible. Building B is a seven unit complex with six student units and one for a resident director. The buildings are a brick veneer over wood construction. Each student has a kitchen/dining room and living room. The upper level houses four students each with two private shower rooms in the bathroom. The main floor has the kitchen/dining room, living room, full bath, and a bedroom for two students.
