A new residence hall on the west side campus of Our Lady of the Lake University is where Alamo Architects again works in a rich histori­cal context. Designed to complement the architectural style prevalent in the older buildings, it incorporates a palette of materials and details that draws on the existing buildings of the main campus and the newer Centennial Hall dorm next door.  Accommodating 98 rooms to house 196 students the dormitory distinguishes itself as a modern interpretation of campus history and context.
