Student Housing, Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts

A Joint Venture with ABW Architects

New dormitory design underway at LSMSA

The Tipton/ABW design team has completed schematic design on a new dormitory for the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts. The new student housing will alleviate the need to house the students in existing dorms on the Northwestern State University campus, and bring them closer to their classrooms and study spaces. The 300 student dorm will feature two-person suite bedrooms in a “flex” format, which allows for reconfiguration in accordance with the proportion of the genders living in the space year by year. The building will also include communal gathering spaces and study areas, as well as test kitchens for group meals.
