The design of the Student Services Building provides accessibility to vital administrative services. Nestled within its context, the building’s undulating roof connects it to the surrounding mountains, while generous overhangs shelter the exterior skin and north-facing roof protrusions provide daylight. The landscape, mounded around the base, anchors the building to the ground and surrounds a pedestrian breezeway bisecting the building, sheltered by the roof. Workspaces and offices invite daylight and views and facilitate inter-departmental collaboration.
