University of Missouri – Columbia: Sigma Nu Fraternity House
The new space for the Sigma Nu fraternity at the University of Missouri required accommodations for 80 members, including space for dining, studying, meeting and leisure activities, as well as a fitness center and game room.
During the schematic design phase of a project, KWK Architects creates videos like this so the client can feel the character of the space we design together. These visualizations not only function as an invaluable device to help the client’s understanding of the project, but also, as in this case, can be an effective fundraising tool.
UNC Charlotte Phase XIV
This video was produced to help illustrate design ideas for Phase XIV Residence hall at the University of North Carolina Charlotte. The project is a new 420-bed residence hall with a mix of apartments and suites. The building also includes offices and academic-support spaces for the University’s Honors College and Levine Scholars programs. Students in these programs will have the opportunity to live in the residence hall – which will help support the development of a true living-learning community.
Located near a major entrance to the campus, the new hall acts as a welcome area, which leads to a large residential space. The exterior design creates a strong first impression by using the same brick and cast stone consistent with the majority of the UNC campus. A wide, two-story archway provides a gateway to the residential area and separates the facility from the more private residential areas.
St. Louis University: Developing a Master Plan and Programming for Student Housing
Working with Brailsford & Dunlavey’s team to develop a long-term plan for student housing at Saint Louis University, KWK’s role focused on building assessments and concept development for potential renovation and new housing construction. During the early stages of the planning process, KWK explored options in order to align the project with SLU’s goals and objectives.
Webster University: Interdisciplinary Science Building Project
KWK Architects share our clients’ enthusiasm for each project we undertake. This is why we take the time to document every milestone in our journey together. This effort can be seen in our visualization of Webster University’s new multi-disciplinary science building, which features existing thematic design elements from the campus combined with expansive windows and spacious common areas.
Nothing drives the team at KWK Architects more than the utmost amount of pride we take in every single project. This is evident by speaking with our clients and staff, and reflecting on the commitment and goal-based focus that is the centerpiece of every single project.
