CHIC LIVING: Privacy, also, was requested for the new space, and each of the apartments contains a living room, kitchen, washer–dryer, and four bedrooms—all with private bathrooms for each student. Here, too, finishes were made to look attractive yet remain durable: vinyl plank rather than wood flooring; sofas and lounge chairs upholstered in leatherlike, durable fabrics; and metal feet for furniture.
WIDE APPEAL: Upperclassmen living at Lobo Village can have fun at a resort-style swimming pool and hot tub, sand volleyball court, landscaped seating, barbecue pavilion, and wider sidewalks than usual so several students can stroll together. To fit the Southwestern locale, the buildings were sheathed in pueblo-style stucco with a nod toward playful modern design and pops of bright purple and orange.
TOGETHERNESS: Since being together was tops on most students’ wish lists, the property includes attractive gathering spaces, with a state-of-the-art game room and garage-style glass doors that lift up to meld indoors with outdoors.
