Mackenzie Hall Housing Complex Study

MacKenzie East Road MIddle

Alfred State College

Mackenzie Housing Complex at Alfred State College is a 40-year old residential community housing over 1100 students; it consists of a combination of interconnected low and high rise buildings and is home to a variety of students with diverse lifestyles.
Mach Architecture's study addressed the range of age-related concerns facing the complex of buildings and was the first large-scale comprehensive strategic design analysis performed since original construction.  The challenge of outlining a programmatically responsive, fiscally viable and forward-looking renovation was addressed with scope items ranging from hazardous materials remediation to technology agility, with contemporary student lifestyles having significant impact on design.
