Bates College Kalperis and Chu Halls

Ann Beha Architects as Architects

Student life at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, centers on a rich residential and campus culture. Ann Beha Architects(ABA) completed a campus plan, exploring the revitalization of underutilized campus buildings, investment in the surrounding neighborhood, integration ofcampus programs with new student housing, campus landscape initiatives, and development of a multi-phase plan forimplementation.


As the first completed phase of the campus plan, ABA’s design for Kalperis and Chu Halls, which comprise the newStudent Residences and Campus Life Center, creates a new campus gateway and student communityon Campus Avenue, the college’s main street. The new mixed-use complex houses more than 240 students and a retailcommons with the campus bookstore as well as amail and print shop. Together, the brickandglass buildings create a new anchorfacility for the college, visitors, and the community.


The facilities provide year-round accommodations and programming, hosting research conferences and residents duringsummer months. Mixing residence halls with retail services creates a multifunctional cornerstone for the campus.
