Criswell College Student Housing | Dallas, TX
Criswell College is a Christian college in Old East Dallas, Texas. JHP had the honor of designing the first Student Housing building to ever go on their campus, the Mary L.A. Stanton and Lance E. Ouellette Resident Hall. The 5-story Lance’s Hall is home to 109 students, with 2 per most units. The plan is efficient and accommodating, with communal study and meeting rooms, laundry areas, designated rooms for the Resident Assistants, a mail room, and multiple kitchens. This project considered sensitivity to the existing campus, which maintains a classical style while sitting in an urban area. Cast-stone belt courses, rusticated wall detailing, and acroteria give Lance’s Hall an art-deco style, keeping it in conversation with the rest of the Criswell College campus.
