UCLA looked to Pfeiffer, in concert with KieranTimberlake, for the planning and design of four new residence halls on the Northwest Campus. The goals of the project were to add an additional 1,500 beds, a 750-seat dining commons, a large multi-purpose room, meeting rooms and a small fitness center. Construction ran in three construction contracts. Following completion of the housing master plan and first phases of construction, Pfeiffer prepared a detail program for an “infill” phase, adding 1,525 beds in four new residential buildings within the Northwest Campus, helping to fulfill the University’s unmet need for on-campus housing. A number of options for building massing and siting were developed and costed early on to determine the most cost effective solution. The result was two new nine-story residence halls (190,000 sf) located adjacent to the existing Sproul Hall, including a portion of demolition. Two additional resident halls (nine and seven stories totaling 204,000 sf) are added to the west of the existing De Neve Commons. In addition to the new residence halls, the project includes a 110,000 sf commons complex designed as a three-story structure at the base of one of the new halls. It includes a 650-seat dining commons, a 425-seat conference/ballroom, a 6,000-square foot fitness center and other meeting and catering space, intended for use by both the campus resident population as well as the University’s summer conference program. Implementation of the project required modifications to both the vehicular and pedestrian circulation throughout portions of the Northwest campus. A new Garden Walk was created along with a variety of new paths and stairs to enhance pedestrian flow.
