In an effort to satisfy the University of San Diego’s increasing on-campus housing needs of its undergraduate students, USD engaged Capstone to design and build a Phase II of new residential facilities. Completed in 2006, the second phase of the new housing community provides 132 new beds in apartment-style units. Capstone worked collaboratively with USD officials in Student Affairs, Housing and Residence Life and Facilities Management to meet the programmatic objectives of the campus-wide student learning plan. The new facility was specifically designed to maintain the consistency of its campus-wide Spanish Renaissance architectural statement and to provide a unique living and learning environment shared by both the residents of the new facilities and campus community. Upscale amenities for the facilities included a generous amount of common area space to facilitate increased opportunities for student learning, including group and quiet study rooms, meeting rooms and an outdoor BBQ area.
