In the fall of 2022, 600 new students moved into Cal State Fullerton’s newest housing community. The new development is the first “suite-style” community and complements some of the university’s traditional residence halls and apartments.
“There are so many people involved in making his dream become a reality,” says Larry Martin, Executive Director of Housing and Residential Engagement. “It was exciting to see students moving in. Having well-designed student housing makes the campus more engaging for our students and enhances their college experience.”
In the new housing complex, students live in a suite with seven other students. There are four double-occupancy rooms, two bathrooms and a small kitchenette. The building has three wings with six floors and each floor has five suites with active and study spaces for all to enjoy.
Tangram was engaged by HMC Architects to provide a huge furniture collection for the bedrooms, kitchenettes, study spaces and lounge spaces, with pieces ranging from bed frames to complete desk units to modular sofas to flexible whiteboards. The collection was sourced from many manufacturers including Blu Dot, Coalesse, Steelcase, ERG, National, OFS, Ghent, KI, Safco, Sauder, SitOnIt, Sustainable Furniture, Uline, Pallas, Momentum, Maharam and Designtex. All pieces and materiality were selected for its durability and comfort while staying within budget and Titan blue colorway.
