College Student Village
A Midwest college approached TSI in the summer of 2020 to help with a grand vision of expanding the college campus and placing a flag in the ground as a forward-thinking housing development that would attract student talent from far and wide, and they wanted to build it out of shipping containers! We jumped in to propose a hybrid construction of a total of 6 student housing structures that would house a total of 125 students. Additionally, the design included a dining hall for the students living in the container village including lounge and co-working spaces above the commercial kitchen. While no plans for construction are set yet, this model can be used for other college campuses that seek to add an innovative and sustainable flair to a student housing expansion.
