Temple University: Morgan Hall

A new three-building, 1,275-bed dormitory complex at Temple University was the biggest building project the school had undertaken in decades. As such, it was imperative for the project to attract a huge number of students to live on-campus and to accomplish this within a reasonable budget.

Playful and sturdy furniture in the residential suites were complimented by more refined and striking furniture in the public spaces. Hard-wearing finishes were used throughout, softened with textural variance and refined with careful detailing.
