Dorm Apartment Kitchen

Dorm Apartment Kitchen

Classrooms were converted into 1-, 2-, and 3- bedroom apartments, each fitted with a full kitchen and bath.  The alterations were conceived to minimize the impact on existing historic fabric.  Thus the layout and fixtures fit into existing niches, align with existing window openings, and elements such as the original blackboards and clocks remain.
