Welcoming transitions.
The transition into college brings many challenges to young adults as many of them are living away from home for the first time and must adapt to an unfamiliar environment and the increased demands of higher education. In 2017, California State University, Los Angeles selected HED, in collaboration with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., as the design-build team with strategic goals to nurture a ‘welcoming and inclusive campus’ where everyone thrives, respects differences and hones their cultural competencies. The new 1,500-bed Student Housing East complex will consist of traditional double and triple residence units, with amenities specifically geared towards supporting community-building and growth among students. The design promotes social engagement by providing opportunities to engage in spontaneous encounters, with a variety of spaces for individual and communal activity including comforting study rooms, conference areas, quiet places of respite, a tutoring and resource center and places for celebration.
