mkc awarded student housing at central state
MKC was recently awarded the contract to design and build a 312-bed mixed use student housing center for Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. The building is divided into four different types of programmatic functions: Apartments / Admin / Wellness Center / Secondary Spaces. Both the wellness center and administration occupy the ground floor main wing near the entrance from both campus and the parking. The proposed building massing and organization embodies the design of a complete student housing center. The primary massing stems from four landmark anchors - one at each corner - which serve to bookend the building within the site while serving as landmarks for wayfinding. The project comes after years of planning, and will feature apartment and dorm style student housing in 1, 2, and 4 bedroom configurations. The facility is scheduled to open for the beginning of the 2018 academic school year.
