American Campus Communities – Gladding Residence Center

Sixthriver designed the Gladding Residence Center for American Campus Communities in Richmond, Virginia. The new 12-story, Gladding Residence Center is designed to help students connect. The 365,000 sq ft complex features an abundance of community spaces to house more than 1,500 first year students. The city of Richmond has a strong artistic community that challenged us to design an environment that acts as an equal counterpart to showcase local artists. The project design strives to emulate the local culture of the city including the Richmond Street Art Mural Project (a citywide public mural project throughout the city establishing Richmond as a premier art destination). As an extension of the city’s public artwork, a main design feature was to incorporate colorful artwork, much of it by the school’s alumni and local, and custom graphics on double height wallcoverings in the neighborhoods.
