Grace College - The Lodge
Grace College needed an additional residence hall, and faced with the challenge of building one on a hillside site. To provide a variety of housing options, they wanted to make this residence hall look like a lodge to break away from the traditional collegiate dorm appearance. The 16,600-sf building named The Lodge features vinyl siding of various sizes on the exterior. This fresh use of affordable materials creates architectural detail. Inside, a large lounge allows students to congregate to socialize and study in comfortable furniture besides a beautiful stone fireplace. An overlooking lounge features a social nook and study nook.
