Hill College House: University of Pennsylvania
Designed by renowned Finnish American architect Eero Saarinen and built in 1960, Hill College House at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, underwent a 15-month, $80 million, LEED Gold certified renovation.
The internationally recognized landmark reopened to 500 student residents in August 2017. One of 12 undergraduate residential houses at the university, Hill College House features more public and communal space than any other campus residence.
The University Architect summarized, “In this complex and challenging renovation . . . multiple deft interventions accumulate into a complete refresh of this important building – one that respects and invigorates Saarinen’s design and the community life it so richly fosters.”
