University of Virginia
The University of Virginia approached Goody Clancy envisioning a modern, vibrant residential space to anchor a new “green street.” Our design interweaves building, landscape, and spaces for learning and engagement.
Bond House’s contextual exterior incorporates UVA’s historic material palette, while a warm, comfortable, colorful interior creates a transitional atmosphere for college seniors moving towards post-graduate life. The building’s large entry portal is a welcoming, illuminated front door for students returning home to their apartments. It invites the whole street to enjoy the courtyard within, celebrating UVA’s commitment to both community and sustainability.
In order to maximize activity and use of the space throughout the day, the first floor of Bond House is also home to the new UVA Democracy Initiative, an interdisciplinary enterprise that integrates research, teaching, and public engagement. This academic program supports student success by bringing learning into the heart of the house, creating a vital living-learning environment for upperclassmen.
