PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Healey Family Student Center New South Student Center at Georgetown University is a 45,000 square foot renovation and addition that transforms a portion of an existing mid-century residence hall into a vibrant new university living room for undergraduate life.

Inspired by the unique ‘Hoya Saxa’ (stones) identity of the Georgetown student body, the center creates an experience of study and casual living spaces carved out of interior and exterior stone edifices.

The stone clad ‘Saxa’ living wall provides a natural bio-friendly character to the Great Room and is one of many design features that assist this project in achieving a LEED Gold certification. The Riverside Terrace is an outdoor landscaped area that extends the living space of the Great Room outdoors and overlooks the Potomac River.

The overall character and themes of each of the program spaces evoke the proud heritage of the University in a contemporary architectural language that builds on the ‘Hoya Saxa’ identity of Georgetown and adds to the many interpretations of its Latin root in built form.

The building programme includes:

- Great Room
- Group Study Rooms
- Smoothie Bar/Cafe
- Pub
- Meeting Rooms
- Ballroom
- Music and Dance Studios
- Film Studies Theater
- Outdoor Riverside Terrace

SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

The Healey Family Student Center at Georgetown University was designed to achieve the LEED Gold certification from USGBC. Some design strategies that
contribute to this certification include:Design strategies that contribute to achieve LEED Gold certification from USGBC include:

- Exterior custom bronze solar screen designed and constructed to permit unobstructed views of the Potomac without solar gain from this south and west orientation;

- A 200 foot long skylight in the middle of the existing building to bring natural daylight to the center of the spaces. This allows the artificial lights to be turned off during the day;

- Photo optic daylight dimming automatically controls the lighting levels depending on natural light entering the space;

- Exterior stone was quarried locally in Maryland;

- Interior wood finishes from recycled barns;

- Recycled blue and gray glass chips in the terrazzo;

- Stone clad ‘Saxa’ living green wall provides a natural bio-friendly character and atmosphere to the Great Lounge;

- Low water consumption toilet fixtures and kitchen fixtures in the smoothie cafe;

- Trash is pre-separated into composted materials, paper, aluminium & glass, waste.
