Carroll Residence Halls Receive a Learning by Design award
A Wauwatosa firm nominates Waukesha university for new construction award.
Pioneer Hall and Frontier Hall, two suite-style student residences on the Carroll University campus, have received Outstanding Project recognition from Learning by Design. The 2012 award is in the category of new construction of college/university residence halls, and was submitted by AG Architecture of Wauwatosa.
The two residence halls are part of a three-phase project to better serve today’s private university students. Pioneer and Frontier halls accommodate 496 students in three-, four- and five-bedroom suites with living rooms and kitchenettes. Every floor features lounge space, laundry facilities and a full kitchen. Au Bon Pain restaurant is part of the retail component below the living space in Frontier Hall. The buildings’ exterior is a contemporary take on Carroll’s traditional forms and materials, in a mix of natural stone, brick, simulated stucco and “signature” red roofs. The proposed third phase building will accommodate another 130 students.
The design team includes AG Architecture; developer Clysmic Properties, LLC of Waukesha; interior designer Creative Business Interiors of Milwaukee; Trisect, Inc. of Waukesha, the contractor for Pioneer Hall; and ADH Construction, LLC of Waukesha, the contractor for Frontier Hall.
