KieranTimberlake Wins the Sustainability Honor Award for their UW North Campus Housing Project

Congratulations to KieranTimberlake on winning the Sustainability Honor Award for their University of Washington North Campus Housing Project.

The University of Washington’s LEED Gold-certified North Campus Housing neighborhood extends an historic campus fabric by weaving together four buildings and accompanying landscapes on a previously isolated and heavily sloped part of campus. The residences create a vibrant living-learning community for upwards of 2,000 students, fostering engagement and connection through dining, instruction, meeting, and recreation spaces.

Situated on a natural plateau along a dramatically sloping site, the neighborhood prioritizes green space by reducing impacts on the landscape and maximizing solar orientation where possible. A mid-slope path made a challenging topography readily accessible to all.
