The Village Student Housing

This student housing project on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus houses 525 students. Students are located in two and four-person apartments. Support space includes a community room, study lounges, game room, mailroom, and offices for the hall director. With the intention of targeting junior and seniors, the design of The Village needed to create sufficient privacy and amenities to be attractive to upper division students. In contrast to the traditional dormitory, the apartment units provide students with the privacy they desire while encouraging social and intellectual interaction. The facility also contains a convenience store operated by University Dining Services.

I enjoyed working with SHA on the Canopy Street Project.  It was a very complex project which required both large scale design thought as well as a focus on small details. Their professionalism impressed me as well as all of the other clients in the project from restaurants, to hotel operations through condo buyers, SHA continued to move the project forward and solve problems with all in mind.  As a licensed architect myself I really appreciated their willingness to partner with me and listen to my design ideas while improving the direction time and time again. Quite simply, Canopy Street would not have been nearly as successful without SHA’s talented staff.
