The residential life concept for Miltimore Hall was to provide a state-of-the-art facility to retain upper-class students on campus.

The primary goal of the exterior design was to provide a modern building that would be warm and welcoming to students. The building is organized around a courtyard concept that maximizes the ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCAPACITY437COST PER SQ FT$180.30FEATURED IN2011 Architectural Portfolio site area while placing all the common and program spaces at the corners of the buildings. This ensures that these important spaces have the best views. One of the primary features of the project is a dramatic courtyard that has multiple built-in seating areas and terraced garden spaces.
