Located in Atlanta, United States, Emory University has been a champion of sustainable design practices for decades. And the Emory University Few and Evans Halls by Ayers Saint Gross architects is also freshman dorms that designed to teach residents about sustainable living. This architectural design is on that truly takes green to heart, from the selection of a sustainable site to incorporating features that reduce water and energy consumption and atmospheric impact. Emory University’s Few and Evans Halls consist of 293 beds inside resident hall unit types and community sizes. They have been designed to house communities in traditional double units and a few single units, each with one Resident Advisor and two Sophmore Advisors per floor. Each community is comprised of two ‘clusters’ with their own study lounge located at each end of the corridor and a common floor lounge located in the middle.

Completed in Autumn 2008, these residence halls are currently under review to receive LEED Gold certification. In order to achieve this, the halls have employed a variety of sustainability strategies. Treatment and detention of storm water occurs on site, using visible components of the landscape design, whilst collected rain and condensate water is used for toilet flushing. Photovoltaic panels power the pumps that send the harvested water back into the building and low flow plumbing fixtures and dual flush water closets have been installed to boost water efficiency. Also included in this project are metering facilities and the display of water and energy use to increase student awareness of sustainability issues.
