1515 University Avenue Takes on Corner Business District as a Multi-Functional/Multi-Cultural Student Center at University of Virginia

October 18, 2016

Nalls Architecture Inc. and the University of Virginia addressed challenging concerns that were related to how 1515 University Avenue should function while focusing on high visibility, easy and safe accessibility, and flexibility.  Considering the University’s core values and mission, the multi-functional center will encourage healthy community relationships, foster student intellectual and social growth, embody diversity and enrich the student’s lives while affording an environment that matches individual skills and interests.  Working in close collaboration with students and staff the team breathed new life into an aging structure.  The program includes: social and recreation space, collaboration space, mindfulness space, rehearsal space and a late night dessert café.
