Horn Hall, Williams College

Williamstown, Massachusetts

Situated in the heart of the Williams College Campus this new residence hall provides students with the opportunity to live in a dormitory that is the first of its kind at Williams College. The design of the building is predicted to obtain LEED Gold Certification as well as having a remarkably low Source Energy Use Intensity level of approximately 29, compared to similar residence halls within the U.S. that have an average of 115. 

While typical residence halls on this campus are clad in brick masonry, this building updates that aesthetic with terra-cotta in multiple profiles and metal paneling, allowing for the building to uniquely identify itself from its counterparts. Situated within a neighborhood of residences, the massing of the building perfectly suits its surrounding site context.
