West Residential Village is providing Chapman University with on-campus housing for 400 students. The new residence hall is a key component to an integrated master plan which also includes an adaptive reuse of the Villa Park Orchards Packing House built in 1918. Designed by our sister company AC Martin, the historic Packing House will contain an exciting array of student services, academic uses and a museum. A new central courtyard will act as a circulation hub between the Packing House and student housing while providing a dynamic outdoor space for students to relax and socialize. The new residence hall will be differentiated from existing structures on site by its contemporary design and use of exterior brick veneer accents, visually aligning it with other buildings on the Chapman campus. The building will have a combination of sawtooth and flat roofs, recalling the roof forms of the historic Packing House. The exterior walls will be clad in metal siding at the upper stories and cement plaster at the lower stories, to compliment the surrounding neighborhood’s agri-industrial context.
