Arena District Apartments

Gerding Edlen

Arena District provides a home base for 244 students, capturing the spirit and soul of Eugene, Oregon. This LEED GOLD certified Student Housing forms a micro community within the social context of a university town where sustainability, academic and athletic achievement as well as human connections is valued highly.

The shared social spaces are clad in reclaimed post-industrial milled steel panels, cedar wood siding, natural leather and heavy felt upholstery resulting in a warm setting ripe for social interaction. Design tools like scale and attention to detail create a physical environment that addresses the fundamental needs of students to establish self-worth and build social confidence in our digitally dominated world.
