Georgetown University Healey Family Student Center was awarded LEED Gold the 2015 AIA-DC Award for Excellence in Interior Architecture, and recently the First AIA-DC People’s Choice Award. The 45,000sf New South Student Center at Georgetown University is a renovation and addition that transforms an existing mid-century residence hall into a vibrant new university living room for undergraduate life.

Inspired by the unique ‘Hoya Saxa’ (stones), the ‘Saxa’ living wall is a stone clad green wall that provides a natural bio-friendly character to the Great Room that overlooks the Potomac and is one of many design features that assist this project in achieving a LEED Gold certification.
