Wieland and King Residence Halls
Amherst, MA

Two stone-clad residence halls provide housing for 105 students and are the first buildings for the East Campus Master Plan also developed by our firm. Sited along a gently sloping lawn, the buildings frame the view from this new campus sector towards the Holyoke Range beyond, acting as a transition between the more formal areas of campus and the athletic fields below. (59,000 s.f.; 105 beds)
