Pepperdine University

Location: Washington, DC
Project Size: 14,580 sf

The design for this California-based Christian University included remodeling and transforming their newly acquired space, an existing 1967 commercial building, into an educational and living facility for their Washington D.C. Internship Program and its students.  As a way to integrate the University’s west coast culture throughout their space, a frosted vinyl, graphic wave was applied to the glass fronts along the classrooms and administrative offices. The Client’s innovative space accommodates the University’s classrooms, administrative offices, and the residential facilities. The residential facilities house 28 students, and were designed as fully furnished apartment suites able to sleep two per suite, and are complete with a mini lounge, kitchenette, and bathroom.  Earth tone canvases, and contemporary, Pottery Barn-like furniture were selected to provide the students the comforts of home. 

"Your design creativity was extraordinary and worthy of peer recognition. We are also very appreciative of the considerable time spent in helping us select the finishes and the attention to detail in compiling the final punch list and working with the Contractor." - Dennis Torres, Executive Director
