UCLA Olympic & Centennial Halls
UCLA’s Olympic and Centennial halls were built on the existing Lot 15. This project is a new student housing project on a multi-level site at the UCLA campus. It is being built concurrently with Southwest Campus Apartments, another multi-building student housing project. The commons area of Lot 15 includes maker space and study areas. It is adjacent to the UCLA campus, a residential neighborhood, and an ecological preserve.
Student housing needs to be durable and long-lasting, particularly when constructed at a large scale—in particular, a durable and thermally efficient wall is needed. 4EA worked with Mithun through various wall assembly designs and performed hygrothermal modelling to establish recommended insulation ratios and to help Find A Solution for a durable, long-lasting, and efficient wall design.
