JOHNSON & WALES UNIVERSITY
To commemorate Johnson & Wales University’s one hundredth anniversary, an existing three story building near the JWU Providence Harborside Campus was transformed into Centennial House, as special interest housing for students. This unique dormitory prototype includes a commercial kitchen and pantry. Public spaces are located on the ground floor such as dining, lounge, reflection space, two accessible dorm rooms, and accessible restroom. Single and double dorm rooms are on the upper two floors. The basement houses additional shared spaces including a laundry lounge and storage. A patio with a stone seating wall allows students to occupy the outdoors.
