University of California Hastings, College of the Law Campus Housing
Together with UC Hastings, we created a welcoming hub for the university’s San Francisco-based College of the Law students. Anchored by 900 beds for graduate students and faculty in a range of unit types, each tower of Campus Housing will feature distinct common spaces. Both the new and renovated towers will include academic classrooms, community engagement spaces, food and retail options, and the YMCA.
The heritage 100 McAllister building will be renovated to reallocate the building for an upgrade and realignment of housing unit types. The current sealed access along the corner of McAllister and Leavenworth will be reopened and engaged with the community.
The reconstructed site of 198 McAllister will feature housing units along Hyde Street and add an internal courtyard that will focus on the level 7 sky lounge. This sky lounge features the majority of the common spaces for the housing programs. The design extends connectivity across the city block, provides maximum transparency, and visually extends the vertical connections through the development, drawing students and the community to the campus.
