ECU Tiger Commons
Category : Residential
This student housing project known as Tiger Commons for East Central University filled several university needs that included increased enrollment, handicap accessible living, and off-campus style living. The project resulted in two 3-story apartment buildings with 2-bedroom and 4-bedroom units with handicap units located on the first floor. The buildings are located on campus next to fraternity and sorority housing. Security and north winds were some of the factors used in the design framework that resulted in an open corridor design. Matching existing campus building materials and designs make the buildings fit in with the rest of campus.
