In Spring 2019, Stegman+Associates worked with Grinnell to develop plans for a new residence hall in the city’s downtown as the next phase of residential planning. The new Living-Learning Center will accommodate 130 students and 4 to 6 Faculty-in-Residence in apartment-style units that offer a more independent living style. Planned at about 60,000 GSF, the program includes ground floor social space for both campus and community events, as well as a demonstration kitchen, fitness room and Living-Learning programming offices. Each residential floor also includes communal study space, reinforcing the educational synergy in the building. Units include 4-bedrooms of all singles and 2-bedrooms with one double and two singles each.
The project is about to enter into full design with occupancy expected in Fall 2022. Stegman+Associates will continue in our role as Project Programmer in association with lead architect David Adjaye Associates.
