Skidmore College - Sussman Village Hillside Complex

Saratoga Springs, New York

 

QPK Design was Designer and Architect of Record for two new 57-bed, 4-story student housing buildings. Nestled into an incline just below the campus perimeter road, the new buildings are part of the campus plan to replace the aging Scribner Village housing.

 

Each building houses 11 two-story apartment units and a one-story ADA-compliant apartment unit. The 2-story, 5-person apartment units are entered either from the upslope side across pedestrian bridges or the downslope side from walkways overlooking the Phase 2 portion of Sussman Village; and feature common living spaces (kitchen, dining and living room), private bedrooms, common laundry centers and indoor bicycle racks.

 

Sustainable design features and strategies included geothermal heating/cooling systems; daylight harvesting; energy-efficient lighting; bicycle racks; increased thermal insulation; reuse of an existing building site; and implementation of recycled, local and sustainable-building materials.
