Carver Hall was originally built as temporary housing for those supporting the war effort or attending school. Today’s residents have higher aesthetic expectations, which is reflected in the entry space design that utilizes the existing conditions while improving visual connections. This is accomplished with a bright common room immediately upon entering the building, and the lounge area to be delineated by volume and hidden sources of daylight instead of walls. These changes open the space, improve circulation, increase daylight, and highlight the angled entry, all while providing visual connections to the improved courtyard.
