Project Narrative: Washington & Jefferson College, founded in 1781, is a private liberal arts college in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The firm was commissioned to design a new phased residence hall complex, consisting of two similar buildings forming a quad at the perimeter of the campus that interfaced with the City. The placement of the buildings, flanking a major traffic artery, also defined the edge of the campus.

The two four (4) story masonry and precast concrete buildings reflect the Georgian Revival style, complementing the college's traditional aesthetic and provide a total of 233 beds in suite style accommodations. Suites consist of two single occupancy rooms and one double occupancy room, accompanied by a living area and two bathrooms. Public areas include lounges and study areas at each residence hall.
