UC Irvine – Site II

location: Irvine, California

University of California, Irvine’s new, undergraduate and graduate housing community encourages socialization and interaction while providing privacy in an academically oriented environment.

Two and three story-clustered housing connects to the UCI academic core through a series of pedestrian walkways and bikeways. Balconies, apartment courtyards, pool club, volleyball, and a sport court encourage socializing opportunities. Building heights are limited to maintain comfortable pedestrian scale and to balance student’s need for privacy, safety and quiet.
