Parklawn Residence Hall Remodel, University of Iowa

Iowa City, IA

Interior finishes upgrades were made to Parklawn Residence Hall, a four-story residence hall on the University of Iowa campus. Multiple options were developed for new finishes in the student apartments and the building circulation areas (corridors and stairs.). To meet the campus demand for more options in study environments, two lounges in the lower level were redesigned — one as a more social space with a TV and group seating, and a second as a quieter space with a fireplace.

Upgraded interior finishes include:

  • •  Flooring replacement
  • •  Updated paint scheme
  • •  Bath vanity cabinet replacement
  • •  Room signage
  • •  New message boards
  • •  Glass markerboard surfaces in study lounges
