Study space

The University at Albany and DASNY have hired us to develop a comprehensive renovation plan for Livingston Tower, Paine Hall, Zenger Hall, and the connecting lower level, mezzanine floors and basement level.

Phase 1 of the project includes an 83,000 GSF, 173 bed renovation of Paine and Zenger Halls, and reprogramming of an existing dining hall in their lowest levels to become campus recreation space. The renovated residence halls will maximize the bed count, provide standard University amenities for student housing, maximize natural light, create open public spaces, and provide a desirable housing choice for students - one with a contemporary, energy efficient, comfortable, and safe living environment.
