This project was in response to a competitive request for proposals issued by Cleveland State University as part of a phased master planning initiative to increase opportunities for near campus housing along the University’s northern border. Four separate buildings were planned, each offering various residential types varying from shared suite configurations to more individual housing types geared toward graduate students or faculty.

The historic Done Electric building, a monolithic and distinctive presence in the north campus area, was to be preserved as part of this master plan, and was to be converted to loft-style student residences giving onto a central shared atrium space.
