Built 1988. Project Description: This building is a composite of two gable roof volumes existing simultaneously within a single-plan narrow rectangle. In longitudinal section, from north to south, the building floor approximates the sloping site profile, with ramps connecting various parts of the building. The Central Housing Office Building is constructed on a gently sloping site facing a major campus entry point at the University of California-Irvine. The building fronts on a student walk, the Verrano Mall, which connects the east residential end of the campus with academic and administrative buildings to the west. The building is positioned north-south on the site, with the northwest corner facing the major campus auto entry. Users are typically pedestrians who enter along the ramp connecting the east-west campus walk to the centrally located building lobby. Project History: The architect was selected by the University of California as one of several distinguished architects who are assisting the University in a major capital expansion and building program. Other architects doing buildings at U.C. Irvine include Charles Moore and Frank Gehry. Sponsor/Developer: Regents of the University of California. Project Location: southwest corner Percira Way & Berkeley St., University of California-Irvine, Irvine, CA. Size: 6000 sq. ft.
