Project Description

Meier Hall is a new 5-story, 149-bed student dormitory. Clay brick, together with limestone and slate roofs, create the traditional fabric and character of the historic campus core. Meier Hall draws its proportions, ornament, and palette of materials from this celebrated architectural heritage, and the design utilizes brick as the primary exterior materials, with cut and carved Indiana limestone for accent planes, ornament, and the incorporation of the college symbols.

Soaring towers, steeply pitched gables, crenellated terminations, and ornamental entries all contrast against the modest personality of the brick. QPK combined both traditional and contemporary construction detailing to accomplish a structure the melds the old and the new.

Programmatically, Meier Hall provides student accommodations by combining the traditional single and double rooms, with suites with shared baths. Additionally, support spaces (which include lounges, classroom, seminar, catering kitchen, laundry, and music practice rooms) facilitate shared social and instructional activities within the hall.

Interior design and finishes, including stone and wood panel wall treatment; stone, terrazzo and wood flooring; custom lighting fixtures; and carved limestone ornament integrate the living/learning spaces with the architectural expression throughout the building.
