The Pavilion was featured in Acuho-i's March +April issue as a spotlight project. The Pavilion at Laurel Village is the heart of Colorado State University’s large scale re-envisioning of North residential district and CSU’s first on-campus building to receive LEED Platinum designation. Designed by 4240 Architecture, the building is home to amenities to fully serve the needs of the surrounding 4.8 acre, 615-bed Laurel Village such as a student gallery, mailroom, campus ‘Ecoleaders’ office space, classroom space, and student-led bike repair shop. The Pavilion created a distinct center to a previously disconnected area of campus while engaging students with their environment and with one another.
"The Pavilion is an all-access retreat for students to both engage in the community and relax. This is the first building on Colorado State University's campus to achieve LEED Platinum certification. The biophilic, nature-based design of the building connects the indoors and outdoors seamlessly, with garage doors that open to the patio. Additionally, the second floor of the building is connected to the outdoor ampitheater."
