Art studios are the design features of this nine-story residence hall. While not in the original plan, studios were created by increasing building efficiency. Within suites, single rooms are large enough to include student work space.

The design combines four-room suites with double-height art studios on the top eight floors. The ground floor includes a gallery, cafe, laundry facilities, offices and staff apartments.
