The Hockaday School – Residence Hall

Dallas, Texas

This renovation and addition to an existing three story, 42,250 SF residence facility for an all-girls preparatory school knits together two separate residential wings, formerly connected only by an open walkway at the ground level, into one completely enclosed building connected at all levels. The building houses approximately eighty students in sixty dormitory rooms.

The renovation updates 38,000 SF of existing building space and adds a new 7,200 SF “connector”, providing a new entry and elevator lobby at the ground level, with additional support and amenity spaces above. The amenity spaces include student lounges, study rooms, music practice rooms and expanded staff apartments, as well as a renovated infirmary and Parent Association volunteer room at the ground level.
