Manville Hall

Berkeley CA | Completed 

1995

Manville Hall is a four-story studio residence hall with 132 units near the University of California in Berkeley's downtown business district.

This studio residence hall is located near the University of California in Berkeley’s downtown business district. Reflecting the existing urban typology and preserving the urban street edge, the design situates the 132 apartments in three stories above high-ceilinged, pedestrian oriented retail space.

Arranged around an inner courtyard, these rooms employ the SRO model, achieving individual rooms with private efficiency kitchen and bath, while providing generous common study and recreation spaces. In addition to commercial space, the ground level contains the lobby, laundry room, study lounges, and parking garage.
