Kaufman tapped to design new Pace University hall.

Gene Kaufman Architect, P.C. (GKA) has been selected by Pace University to design new student housing at 33 Beekman Street for its Manhattan campus, continuing a long creative relationship between the firm and the renowned 100-year-old-private metropolitan university.

The property at the corner of Beckman Street and Williams Street was recently acquired by an international investment group and the planned new building has been leased by Pace University for approximately 700 student residences.

GKA's design for the building, its third student residence hall project for Pace, reflects today's highest standards for collegiate residences, including more space per student, state-of-the art systems and technology and thoughtful shared amenities to promote community and quality of life.

"Our expression of student housing reflects the great diversity of the university's student body as well as the continuous change within that group thanks to the influx of new residents each year. The richness of the population is. embodied in the diverse types and patterns of fenestration symbolizing the variety of people and ideas, literally and. conceptually," said Gene Kaufman, founder of GKA.

"This motif, carried through with multiple materials, systems and colors of the facade, is emblematic of the richness of student life and university study."

The project is set to break ground in early 2013.
