UCLA Hedrick Hall
Los Angeles, CA
Located on UCLA's prestigious campus, this study hall was meant to provide it's graduate students with all the comforts and amenities one could wish for when pulling all all-nighter. The design includes a combined library /study and dinning facility, a fireplace lounge, enclosed reading rooms, a study hall, and small group study rooms and community tables that seat up to 60. The food service area includes a market hall, brick pizza oven, patisserie, coffee bar and a 7,000 sf kitchen that rivaled any restaurant in the vicinity, not your typical dorm experience. RVD's inspiration for the design of these spaces was based on the iconic architecture of the university as well as the colors and textures of the west coast skyline.
