Bernard M. & Sarah S. Gewirtz Student Center

 

Bernard M. & Sarah S. Gewirtz Student Center (1993)

Georgetown University
Washington, DC

The Student Center is located to the south of the Academic Building and, with the Law Library to the north, forms a small, self-contained campus. The building is a twelve-story slab with four additional levels below grade. The stepped massing of the building provides a variety of apartment unit sizes, conforms to zoning setback requirements, and creates a transition to the lower, four-story height of the other campus buildings. One hundred fifty-four apartment units occupy ten of the floors; recreational spaces are located on the street level, lower level and the twelfth floor.
