FFKR Architects collaborated with BYU-Idaho officials to develop the program and design for a new student housing complex, The Centre Square. The complex provides housing, in a variety of units, for 960 students. In addition to housing units, the facility integrates student gathering and study areas, administration areas, extra storage spaces, and music rooms. Special attention has been paid to the context of the buildings and site lines to other features on campus. The FFKR team provided and updated massing models as the schematic phase progressed using software such as SketchUp and Revit.
Centre Square housing courtyards are designed with large natural grass playfields and ample lighting for group activities day and night.
