University of Hartford Zachs Hillel House

Hartford, Connecticut

2016

The Zachs Hillel house acts as a community and learning center for the large Jewish student body at the University of Hartford. The ~6,500 sf center incorporates both activity, dining, and religious spaces. Sustainable design parameters primarily focus on minimizing site impact, using renewable materials for primary construction materials (wood), natural ventilation, and reducing energy use through above-code insulation and weatherproofing. The project is currently in schematic design phase.
