Text description provided by the architects. In recent years, the market for student housing has become increasingly competitive, with design-savvy, environmen¬tally-sensitive students choosing between a variety of on-and off-campus living options. The Modules is a 160-bed, 80,000-square-foot building on a half-acre site near Temple University in Philadelphia. The project responds to an emerging student housing market around the Temple cam¬pus as the school transitions from a commuter school to a residential institution.

The Modules approaches this market with a design-driven, high-performance building offering cutting-edge amenities. The building’s modular construction system helps to keep costs down without compromising design quality. Major fea¬tures include light-filled common spaces, generously-sized operable windows, environmentally sound finishes, off-street parking for cars and bicycles, and a green roof terrace with dramatic views of the Philadelphia skyline.
